Honor societies are exclusive organizations for top-performing students. These organizations accept students either via invitation or young scholars applying to the program. Once members of an honor society, students have the immediate benefit of the program’s resources. For example, students may attend networking events and internship fairs to find great leadership opportunities.
Alumni of these societies have an advantage in the job market as they can draw upon the professional networks they developed through their societies. Additionally, they frequently stand out from other candidates as members of these organizations. Many honor societies began as secret groups meant for talented students looking to discuss and engage in important issues. Look at the infographic below for more information.
