    Crystal: Hi Kenzie, I am just now seeing your comment...so glad to hear that the post was helpful for you! I don't think it's a deal-breaker at all. In fact, you could use this as a great talking point during recruitment week. All sororities have a specific philanthropy that they work with, so I think it would be very well received if you mentioned that you are really looking forward to getting involved with serving the community through a sorority! Since you don't have any experience as of now, just leave that section off of your resume. I hope this helps! (Jul 30, 2016 at 13:55 pm)
    Kenzie: This post has helped me so much with knowing what to put on a resume! Sadly in high school I never did community service even though I always wanted to. Is this a deal breaker for most sororities or is it okay because I am very interested in doing it?? Also what should I put on my resume for that or should I just leave that off of it?
