Why join over 225,000 students nationwide in developing skills for successful careers and for life?
Why not? Today’s college student is smarter, more resourceful, and more competitive than ever, having to keep up with a career market that is equally so. Through highly competitive business events that involve application as much as theory, and intensive workshops, Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) helps foster the natural spirit of competition embodied by students today.
We may be competitive, but let’s face it: we’re college students. This means that though we work hard, we can party just as hard. FBLA-PBL offers members opportunities to meet and work closely with members and mentors from around the nation. Social events both sanctioned by FBLA-PBL and independent of it are a hallmark of our conferences. Whether it’s a girl from Georgia and a guy from New York together on the dance floor, or a group of fifteen students from four different states having dinner at the Hard Rock Café, the opportunity to meet people and make friends at a conference is almost limitless!
FBLA-PBL also recognizes that, in our future careers, many of us will be interacting with people with a wide array of professional backgrounds. It is this idea that serves as the basis for the premise of the organization: bring students of all courses of study and interests together and cultivate healthy, professional interaction. This is because the skills that FBLA-PBL teaches, such as public speaking, job interviewing, résumé writing, basic accounting, and interpersonal communication (just to name a few of the scores of others), can be found in every single occupational field (that’s right, even scientists need to be able to write resumes and interview for jobs). It is this one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive approach that separates FBLA-PBL from many of the business organizations in existence.
Plus FBLA-PBL has been in existence for over 65 years. It is the premier organization for students preparing for successful careers.
So why wait? Join FBLA-PBL today!
