Hi all! I'm wondering how valuable joining an honors society is in terms of job searching (in general, but also for EA-specific roles). I've received invitations from the few honors societies that seem legitimate (Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi) and am weighing whether I should pay the member fee for one of them. Does anyone have any knowledge / experience with this? Thanks, Sean

What is your field? In software engineering I've never heard of an honors society being useful to anyone. In any case, I highly doubt it would be helpful when trying to network within EA, but note that most impactful roles for EAs involve networking outside of EA. 

Yeah, I'm in SE, but have been considering some additional fields as well. Thanks for the info!
