Why Is This Service FREE for House Moms?

Since 2006, it’s been FREE for women to upload their resumes for employers to consider them for open House Director positions. Our founder’s mission has always been “Helping House Directors Succeed” and this one of the ways we do that.

Why SororityMom’s Free Resume Service Was Born


Way back when, one of the big service vendors who supplies sororities and frats across the country, tried offering a page for prospective House Director candidates to post their resumes. It was a great idea, especially because the vendors know where openings are wherever they have clients, which is the majority of Houses at a university. Housemoms and cooks tend to chat with the guy who delivers the food and lightbulbs each week. So the vendors are in the know! 


But a page like that featuring Housemother resumes required constant monitoring — which they must not have had time for or figured into the equation. So much junk got posted on it by hackers. It was filled with porn promoters who found it and had fun making awful posts between women’s resumes. It was not secure. It destroyed the credibility of the site and made it impossible for real candidates to be taken seriously. Granted, this was back in ’01. Nothing happened on it since. 


That’s why SororityMom made a place for you all to post your resumes for FREE! We witnessed that embarrassing disaster. And at the time, the only online job search was If women had never heard of this career, they didn’t even know to search for it. So, we got started on the resume feature in 2006 to make a difference for all of us.

Being a House Director is like wearing many hats. Besides managerial skills, mentioning if you’re computer proficient, bilingual, or have your own car can be added here. We have a full list in our guide of the best skills to add to your resume.

Gaps in the Workforce

We personally know what it’s like to be out of the workforce for many years, and then have to “relaunch” our careers. How do you account for the “lost years” on your resume? Are you wondering how to structure the resume correctly? Making it look “correct” dramatically increases your chances of winning that interview.

When Does Hiring Season Start?


Hiring season in the sorority world is intense in the spring!! The Boards love to have final decisions made before the end of their school year. It’s really a very short time frame when the dominoes begin to fall – when one House Mother gives her resignation, her position becomes open…another jumps to get it, leaving her position open…and on it goes. 


Of course, if that hiring timing doesn’t work out, then sororities must continue their search over the summer. It can slow down for a while with everyone leaving campus. They will be highly motivated to get new Directors in place a couple of weeks before their university or college resumes. But that can be anywhere from early August to mid-September. Sometimes you get the offer late — so stay flexible if you can. 


It can be a long process in searching for the right person if it didn’t happen during the intense period from March-June. Make sure your resume is updated year-round and check for jobs regularly.
