  • Ask a Field Representative

    What’s the difference between a Leadership Consultant and a Chapter Consultant?

     
    • Leadership Consultants travel across North America visiting our chapters and providing them with advice and support.
    • Chapter Consultants are resident advisers to one chapter and assist with chapter management, programming and more.
    • Field Representatives are comprised of Leadership Consultants and Chapter Consultants. To apply for either position, complete the Field Representative application.
     

    Is being a Leadership Consultant a real job?

     
    • Yes, it is a real job!
    • We are employees of the Fraternity, a nonprofit organization.
    • Similar to any other organization or company, there is an application and hiring process. We are provided with a salary, benefits and training.
     

    How do I get my parents on board? What did you tell your parents?

     
    • If you’re interested in attending graduate school, being a Leadership Consultant is a great way to see different universities and experience campus life firsthand.
    • It is a paying job with benefits. Being a Leadership Consultant will give you professional experience and a multitude of skills that will allow you to be successful and marketable in a variety of fields.
    • It’s a wonderful opportunity to explore North America, do something you’re really passionate about, and empower women!
     

    What does the interview process look like?

     

    There are two components to the interview process. The first is a two-on-one phone interview with the Field Representative Chairman and the Fraternity Director of Talent Management. After the interview, you may be asked to fly to Columbus, Ohio, for a second, in-person interview.

     

    When did you graduate?

     

    Most Leadership Consultants are recent graduates. Many of us are around 22 or 23 years old. This makes it easy for us to relate to the different facets of college life.

    How do you fit everything in your suitcase?

     

    Packing cubes are our favorite travel accessory! Almost all of us use them to keep our suitcases organized and make items easier to access. Most of us travel with one, large checked bag as well as one carry-on suitcase and tote bag or backpack.

    How do you do laundry?

     

    We ask the chapters we’re visiting. We usually stay in the chapter house or with a member in her home or apartment. There are usually laundry facilities available for us to use.

    Where’s your home base?

     

    We don’t really have a home base because we typically go from chapter to chapter. However, when we have weekends off, we have the opportunity to take side trips or go home.

    What are the career benefits of being a Field Representative? How will the experience benefit you later on in your career?

     
    • Relationship management know-how
    • Creative and analytical problem-solving skills
    • Decision-making capabilities
    • Conflict resolution abilities
    • Practice with public speaking and group facilitation
    • Coaching and mentoring experience
    • Communication and interpersonal skills
    • Crisis management practice
     

    Does Kappa cover travel costs?

     

    Yes. The Fraternity covers the costs of chapter visits. However, if we have a weekend off and want to take a side trip, we are expected to pay our own way.

    Do you ever have time off?

     

    Yes. Typically, if we aren’t on a recruitment or initiation visit, we have the weekend off.

    Where do you stay during weekends off?

     

    If we don’t want to make a side trip to another city, we have a list of alumnae who live all across the U.S. and Canada who are willing to host us. Former Leadership Consultants are also great resources.

    Are you a Kappa?

     

    Yes! All Leadership Consultants and Chapter Consultants are members of Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity.

    Is Chapter Council experience required to apply to be a Leadership Consultant? Is it required to have been the chapter President?

     

    There are no specific requirements in regard to positions on Chapter Council. While many Leadership Consultants have been actively involved within their chapters, your leadership experience is not required to be chapter specific.
