What the heck is a Leadership Consultant?
It is kind of hard to put into words what I will be doing next year, simply because it sounds too good to be true. So take a couple minutes to watch and see for yourself . . .
Okay, so my job won't really be this awesome but pretty close. In a nut shell, I will spend the next year visiting 30 Universities all over the U.S. and Canada and meeting amazing chapter women of Kappa Kappa Gamma. While visiting, I assess the organizations performanice in scholarship, recruitment, operations, standards, finance, risk managament and programming. I will also track campus trends, share ideas and support the women with any weaknesses they identify. I am most looking forward to getting to know the women of the organization and to learn how their time in Kappa is shaping their college experience in the most beneficial way. Each visit is 5 days, I live out of my suticase and did I mention I get to travel the country? I really do have the best job in the world.
Many Greek lettered organizations have an opportunity similar to Kappa Kappa Gamma's Field Representative program and what a fortunate opportunity it is to have. Joining a sorority in college gave me a completely different persepective for academics, social obligations and especially living away from home. I had no pressure to join a Greek-lettered organization, especially because no one in my family was Greek before me. I knew a little bit about the leadership opporunities it could open for me but I had no idea this could be one.
To those that are strangers to the Greek community, I hope hearing about this opportunity for post graduates students like me sheds light on the negativite steoreotypes fraterniteis & sororites tend to have. To my Panhellenic & future sisters, make the most out of your four years and take advantage of what being apart of a greater good can do for you.
