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.
With Merit, members can customize their online profile with a photo, bio, activities, affiliations and work experience. Consider it a virtual résumé! Your Merit page is also social, so sharing news with your inner circle on Facebook and Twitter is easy.
Best part? Your Merit page is created and updated automatically by Phi Kappa Phi—you don’t have to maintain it. 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.
If you haven’t received a Merit profile (anyone initiated prior to March 2013) and would like to get started, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and member ID number.
