A Piece of Advice
Throughout my career, I have supervised many people who are just entering the workforce or are very early in their careers. I tell them all the same thing: Collect as many experiences as possible. Participate in as many things as you can. It may not seem useful or relevant now, but you never know when that experience might be useful down the road. Phi Delta Theta affords the opportunity to do this before you begin your career. Sit on committees. Volunteer for the job no one else wants. Run for the chapter office you’ve always wanted. I can say, without a doubt, those things will help you become a leader both in school and, subsequently, in your career.
