Merit_example-1In a competitive job market, a positive online presence is critical. Whether you are graduating this month or on the hunt for a new career path, Phi Kappa Phi has the perfect tool to enhance your online presence. 

Meet Merit

Merit is an online platform that allows Phi Kappa Phi members to promote academic and extracurricular achievements, work experience, leadership roles and much more. Not only does Merit allow you to receive the recognition you deserve, it is a surefire way to polish your online presence!

Once awarded a Phi Kappa Phi initiate “badge,” members are able to customize their online Merit page and easily share it with family and friends via social media or as an online résumé for prospective employers.

You’re probably asking how is this different than other professional online profiles such as LinkedIn?

With Merit, your profile is automatically created by Phi Kappa Phi Headquarters with verified accomplishments such as being initiated into the Society or receiving a Phi Kappa Phi award. In addition to these verified achievements, you can enhance your profile with the other achievements and activities most important to you. 

If you haven’t received a Phi Kappa Phi Merit page (those initiated prior to March 2013), email Hannah Breaux at with your name and member ID number to get started.
