Fraternities: Hot or Not?

David: I'm in a fraternity, and I was wondering what your thoughts are on whether fraternity membership should be on a resume. Does including it help or hurt?

It is OK to mention fraternity membership, but only at the bottom of your resume. Perhaps, you will get lucky and make a connection with an alumnus.

In general, fraternities are good for building leadership and communication skills and suggest a well-rounded, social person. If you stay away from the rah, rah brotherhood stuff, mentioning it should be a net positive.
