Have you been feeling that it’s time for you to make a change? A new job perhaps?
If you’re thinking that you want a new job in the Sorority World, then this is the time to prepare! March is the beginning of hiring season, believe it or not!
Spring break marks the end of winter, winter semester, and everyone starts turning toward the last day of the school year.
It may seem to be 2-3 months away in May or June, but time speeds up after spring break! While the college girls will be feeling it, so will Sorority House Directors and House Boards.
The first women who know they’ll be leaving their House Director jobs will begin submitting resignations. Boards will be anxious to get interviews completed before the school year ends if at all possible.
(Just so you know, hiring wil go on in the summer, too, as it’s dependent on women in existing House Director jobs giving notice. But the push will be to fulfill positions before the girls leave for the long summer break).
Are you ready to interview?
Do you have your resume prepared — targeted for this particular job?
Have you researched the job? That’s why we’re here at SororityMom, ready to jump in to help you!
Read the most important guide first to see if you really want this job: The Sorority House Director’s Survival Guide! Real life experiences shared about the job, living with young women 24/7, being self-reliant as a mature single woman managing a large household.
It would be to your advantage to read up about feeding a large house of hungry girls who are on every diet invented before you step foot into a new job!
The Board of Directors will be relieved that you are knowledgable about managing a budget and menus. That book’s a fast read, but you will go into the interview confident.

EXCERPT FROM THE SORORITY HOUSE DIRECTOR’S SURVIVAL GUIDE
THE INTRODUCTION FROM MONA MEYERS:
“Hello, friend. If you’re wondering what a sorority House Director does, this book was written for you. You may never have heard of this career until now. It’s the best hidden career for single (mature) women who have a sense of adventure and enjoy working closely with people. Welcome to this unique female world.
Okay, let’s first address that term “mature!” It’s not an insult. This job is not for inexperienced young women. But you probably don’t want to read “older” women, although that’s who fits the job description perfectly. Ah, but what is “older” these days?! Forty to seventy-five? If you fall anywhere in that age category, this job is for you.
This book will give you a comprehensive view of what it’s like to be the person who holds the sorority house together. Then it will take you step-by-step through the process of finding a job in the field.
The goal is to make this a fun, informative read. You’ll find a bunch of anecdotes gathered from the real experiences of House Directors. This book wouldn’t be nearly as interesting or helpful without their input because what they have to say is true, poignant, amusing, and very educational. Learn from their experiences!”
