40 Vibrant Words to Use in a Sorority-To-Career Resume

Dear sorority sugar, I am a recent Delta Zeta Alumna and am trying to figure out how to include my sorority experience in my resume. Especially my role as Assistant Ritual Guard, where I got to guide our new members through our initiation ritual. Help!

sorority sugar: It’s a great idea to include sorority life on your career resume. Teamwork, fundraising, marketing, leadership and organizational skills are just a few of the things you can translate to the “real world.” The trick is listing your skills in a way that applies to the workplace. 

As Assistant Ritual Guard you may have….. assisted members in completing an important task, served as a team leader and were responsible for conducting an important membership event. You may also have been involved in organizing, planning and motivation! 

Make sure you include all the tasks that you performed. For example, if you served as Recruitment Tee Shirt Chair, and only mention that you passed out tank tops on bid day, it doesn’t fully explain the coordination needed for the job, how you worked with a budget and the serious organizing skills needed to handle the task. Not to mention creative design, people management and purchasing duties. All that knowledge came from just one position held. 

Those types of ‘experiences’ are what employers are looking for. Your resume should highlight what you did in college, but be written in words that any employer can understand. Be crystal clear for people who know nothing about being in a sorority, but who do appreciate leadership, achievement and hard work!
