Have you heard about Phi Kappa Phi’s member achievement program, Merit? The Merit program, implemented in 2013, helps Phi Kappa Phi promote member successes such as being initiated into the Society, receiving an award, becoming a chapter officer, attending Phi Kappa Phi events and more. Not only does Merit allow you to receive the recognition you deserve, it’s a surefire way to polish your online presence!
Merit allows members to customize their online profile with a photo, bio, activities, affiliations and work experience. Consider it a virtual résumé!
Updates to Merit pages are shared with a network of stakeholders who are invested in your achievements: family and friends, local news outlets, employers, former teachers, colleges and universities, volunteer organizations and more. In addition to keeping your achievements and activities in one virtual place, Merit can build your online presence to help you secure jobs, get internships and collect references.
Your Merit page is also social, so sharing news with your inner circle on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn is easy.
If you have not received a Merit profile (anyone initiated before March 2013 or anyone who opted out during the join process) and would like to take advantage the program and its many benefits, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and member ID number.
