A couple years ago Matt Noble, a member of Kappa Sigma and a 1986 graduate of University of Arizona, asked alumni what they would have done differently in college. The responses were overwhelmingly career focused. Graduates wish they had career mentors, more career-based presentations, more networking opportunities, etc.
This prompted Matt and his partners Duke Schwartz and Pete Parker to form Greek Ladders the following year. After receiving the survey results, they wanted to provide more career opportunities to students. And Matt has always had a passion for helping people, and his extensive background in non-profit was a testament to his commitment to helping others. In today's employment environment, securing a job can be challenging, so Matt wanted to help using the large Greek network.
Greek Ladders' primary goal is to provide an opportunity for students to interface with employers and vice-versa. In addition to networking opportunities, Greek Ladders also works with alums and campuses to arrange career fairs, guest speakers, and mentors.

Anyone (undergrads, chapters, businesses) can sign up for access to the company's web site (www.GreekLadders.com
). On the site they will be able to check out job opportunities, plus they'll receive a weekly newsletter that highlights a different student in each issue.
