There are many benefits of joining a professional association/organization, especially as a student. One of the most important benefits is the opportunity to interact with other professionals in the field. Getting a job in the future is all about who you know, and what networks you have created. With these memberships you can get a head start on creating a network of individuals, and start gaining references etc. Other benefits of joining a professional association are; learning leadership development, learning how the organization operates, keeping up to date on new health information, and having discounted registration fees for professional meetings and
FBLA membership has benefitted me because I can truly say it led me to my career choice. Junior year I had the opportunity to participate in the SBE Program at the Ste. Genevieve Care Center. By being a part of this program, I was required to join FBLA. Although FBLA was an organization I had wanted to join for a while, I needed a push to get involved in the club. Being involved in this club was one of the greatest decisions I have made during my high school career. My first year in the organization, I competed in the straight to state event, Social Media Campaign. Due to this participation, I attended the District Leadership Conference where I was a timekeeper and the State Leadership Conference, where my partner and I presented our project. The State Leadership Conference was a memorable event as it was different than any other conference I had attended before. That year I also served on multiple committees and assisted in the decorating of the Senior Citizen’s Christmas Dinner.
A. Networking is letting people know you are looking (friends, family, etc.). I plan to use this technique by telling everyone I know, that I am currently looking for an HR internship and that if they may know anyone in that field to please put in a word for me. By doing so I expect to create a broader range of open opportunities because my name can be heard by different people and relayed to different companies who may also relay the message to companies or friends they know.
Currently, I am a member of Red Cross Club, UNICEF Club, India Club, MED Club, MUN club, and Symphony. Last year, I have also participated in the Robotics club. These clubs help me learn more about myself and my interest, my goals, and my skills. It really open up my viewpoint. By participating in all these clubs may seem very tense and demanding. In contrast, I joined these clubs because they relieve my stress. They are great ways to communicate with other students and have a lot of fun exposed to real life experiences in the fields/subjects you are interested in. Being a member of these clubs also gives opportunity to meet and network with other people with similar interests.
The National Honor Society is a great way for me to be able to interact more with my fellow peers and be able to discuss solve and help with any problems we or the community might have. This organization helps me build a resume that would really appeal to colleges and sets a foundation for my college application. The National Honor Society will also give me ways to mature into a better person and be able to grow in the right path.
When asked why do you want to be in National Honors Society, many things came to my mind. Some being, the awesome volunteer projects, the camaraderie of being in the Society and the joy of being in such a highly regarded club. I want the opportunity to be part of this club because I believe in the activities they participate in and I believe that I am a perfect fit for National Honor Society. Additionally I want to be in National Honor Society because I think it offers up many great opportunities.
A reason why I would like to become a member of the NJHS is that it means that you are a leader to your classmates. You are the person who your classmates look up to as a model student. As a member of the NJHS, you excel in not only academics but also by being a leader, having citizenship and character.
I should be a member of the National Honors Society because I love going out and showing off my passion for helping others and growing with community members who share the same interests as me. I feel that by taking part in the National Honors Society I will grow to appreciate a new set of people and get more in touch with who I am as a person and not as what I conform to be. I hope to bring in a new personality to help add to the atmosphere and to give more to the National Honors Society than just being a bag of luggage.
The first time I heard about Business Professionals of America (BPA), I was in 10th grade, I thought I definitely did not belong in that organization, first of all because I was not Professional and secondly because I did not know about business. I had a persistent friend that finally convinced me to join and at first I thought it was a waste of time since I did not know anyone at first. Now as I look back I am glad I joined because BPA has changed my life greatly. I have become more responsible and overall I have become a leader.
The Environmental Defense Fund boasts an impressive membership of over 1.5 million individuals, making them one of the largest environmental interest groups in the world in terms of membership. While membership is technically ‘free’ for the organization, in order to become a member, you must first enter your contact and credit card information and select a voluntary ‘gift’ amount. While “other” is an option for the gift amount, in which one can enter $0, it is evident that the organization strongly encourages contributions and would greatly prefer monthly or annual ‘gifts’ is possible. Overall, the process of becoming a member is fairly straight forward, the only necessary steps to join is to enter one’s contact and

Joining a secret organization in college is essential to succeed in college because once you graduate, those organizations will use their influential power and wealth to promote you into the workplace. It is all about who you know and what they can do for you. If I was a member of a secret organization, I would ask my sisters to help me get a nursing position at a high profile hospital. Once I was working, in return, I would help other sisters get jobs within the hospital, I now work. As the old saying goes, “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours”.
