Professional Development Conference
The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity aims to ensure our undergraduate members are receiving the most relevant programming to enhance both their personal and professional talents. In this vein, the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity is excited to announce our newest program: the Professional Development Conference.
On October 19-22, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois at The Westin O’Hare Hotel, our undergraduate members had the opportunity to attend a premiere conference to enhance their professional skills. The program was only available for our Junior and Senior (third year and fourth year) students, but was open to all majors and backgrounds.
This was a unique chance that enhanced professional skills through intense workshops, excellent networking opportunities, and one-on-one coaching. This type of conference will left participants feeling prepared to tackle their post-collegiate career through:
- Building interview skills, resume, and action plans for career planning
- Learning the skills to “dress for success”
- Working on developing stress management and a healthy work-life balance
- Developing networking skills in both a professional manner and with Phi Psi alumni
- Teaching participants how to be able to make good judgments quickly, sell themselves in any interaction, and manage conflict and difficult conversations in an appropriate fashion
- Much, much more
If you are an undergraduate that would benefit from this experience, check back at a future date for 2019 registration. The application cannot be saved, so you must complete your application in one sitting. We only have 200 spots available, and each chapter is allowed to send up to two (2) members. There will be a waitlist for open spots as they become available if chapters decide not to send any members, so please do not hesitate to apply!
If you are an alumnus interested in being a part of this program as a coach, please apply HERE! You will be notified at the middle or end of September if you have been chosen to coach our undergraduate members. If you would like to be involved with the program other than as a coach we would love to work with you and your company for our recruiter panel or career fair. Please send us the contact information of the person to whom we can reach out!
If you have any questions, please feel free to send your questions to James McLendon, Associate Director of Member Development.
