Tips for Writing a Better Sorority Resume

Focus on your relevant background

To develop a great resume, base it on what you already know about the sorority — its mission, values, and activities. You can do this by first zooming out a little and taking the full measure of your relevant background. Follow these three steps:

1. Brainstorm and jot down the various things you’re proud of about your life, whether from work, high school, or extracurriculars. Don’t worry about relevance or organization – yet.
2. Now with everything on the table, filter out any details you think fall beyond the sorority’s focus. Review each detail one by one, always answering the same question: Does this align or overlap with what the sorority is about? When in doubt, delete.
3. Organize and format your remaining details as the basis for your resume.

The order of these steps is important. Don’t start deleting unnecessary details until you’ve brainstormed plenty about your positive life experiences. And don’t start organizing details until you’re done filtering them. Otherwise, you’ll probably waste time polishing up details that you just delete later on. For more on this process and how you can use it to organize your various high school information, read: How to Build a Resume for College Applications

Get specific in your Profile

You boost your Profile section by adding a specific achievement from your experience so far. The achievement will be especially eye-catching if you can quantify it with a clear number, percentage, or dollar amount.

Example:

Member – Class of ’26 at Temple University

Recent demonstrated success helping organize events in a fast-paced environment. Member of the track team that placed in the top 4 out of 18 high schools in the region for three consecutive years. Bilingual: Fluent in English and Mandarin.

Use dynamic verb phrases

You may have excellent interpersonal skills (or “soft skills”) like collaboration and communication. But when you refer to these skills using an adjective or noun phrase like “Highly collaborative” or “Strong collaboration skills,” they won’t stand out. That’s because (a) they’re pretty vague by themselves, and (b) countless other people use the exact same phrases on their own resumes.

To get around this problem, convert each soft skill into a verb phrase (such as “Collaborate with…”) when possible – this allows you to flesh out the idea with details that are more engaging and specific to you.

Example:

  • Collaborated closely on a 10-person team to form and organize compelling debate arguments
