This qualitative study utilized Super’s Developmental Theory (1980) to explore practitioners’ perceptions of sorority members’ career development. Researchers interviewed five practitioners who work with sorority members in a variety of capacities. Four themes emerged: alignment of environment and values, connection between life cycle and membership, balancing multiple formal and informal roles, and impact of past experiences on future experiences. Implications included providing earlier education and support on transitioning between roles within and outside the sorority chapter, council, and community, providing structure reflection, and increasing collaboration between career centers and offices of fraternity/sorority life.
