The Leadership Consultant Experience
The Phi Delta Theta Leadership Consultant experience is the embodiment of becoming the greatest version of yourself. The experience allows you to travel throughout North America while helping undergraduate Phis further their personal and chapters’ paths to greatness. You may spend time recruiting the Fraternity’s newest members through its expansion efforts, and in the process, hone your own sales and marketing skillset. You may also spend time inspiring new visions for our 190+ chapters, developing the skill set of an organizational consultant and regional manager. While on your leadership consultant journey you will interact with volunteers and staff on a daily basis exposing you to a wide variety of careers. Past consultants have gone into an array of fields from teaching and business to healthcare and law. Each consultant has had the opportunity to utilize the diverse network of connections gained through his experience.
Through the experience as a leadership consultant you will develop vital professional skills that are beneficial to any career. You will learn to build rapport, manage time, communicate effectively, establish priorities and much more. The true uniqueness of the job comes from the opportunity to meet many types of people and experience great colleges, landmarks, touring acts, and sports teams, all during your time “on the road.” This is why every current and former leadership consultant will tell you that applying is the first step towards a life changing experience!
We recently changed our process to give our most interested candidates the opportunity to secure employment well before graduation. If you would like to apply, please submit the application below by September 30 for early consideration. Candidates can apply until November 15, however, there is a chance that all positions will be filled by then.
