Merit is a great way of letting other Phi Kappa Phi members—and potential employers—know what makes you stand out! I'm glad I get to share my activities and interests with other members so easily.

Recognizing Our Members

merit

To celebrate and recognize the achievements of its members, Phi Kappa Phi uses a program known as Merit. This program allows us to create and publish personalized stories about members’ achievements such as being initiated into the Society, receiving a Phi Kappa Phi award, becoming a chapter officer and more. 

When a story is created, it will be posted to the Phi Kappa Phi Merit page and distributed to the member’s hometown newspaper(s). In addition, a customizable online Merit profile will be created for the member to easily share his or her achievement with family and friends on social media.

Each story includes a Phi Kappa Phi-branded badge representing a specific achievement. Consider it a virtual trophy! Members can enhance their online Merit profiles by adding a photo, other activities, achievements, work experience and affiliations. Merit profiles provide a positive, professional online listing of accomplishments for members to share with prospective employers.

Check out Phi Kappa Phi's Merit page to see the latest member achievements.

A Merit page is a résumé that builds itself. Details included on Merit profiles are:
