> When a GLO graduates and puts on thier resume, that they were a member, many times they will be hired over others who were not
The operative word is "many". In four decades of technology employment, pretty much every interview I had could be boiled down to two questions:
1. Can you do the job?
2. Can you work with the people and culture here?
My college era was a great time for Greeks, and, even though Greeklife has risen and fallen a few times in the intervening years, I was usually competing with those about my age. Many times, my fraternity experience was brought up, particularly with respect to managing a small group of people.
With many projects, where we were working 80+ hours a week, the office resembled a fraternity house - people needed to be fed, housed, and risk management came in to play. Naturally, we weren't drunk, but I had to drive many a worker home, who had worked 36 hours straight, and had fallen asleep in my car.
The particular house did not matter, but the experience was crucial, and companies hired because of it.
