Joining this organization was definitely a smart decision during my undergraduate career. The benefits that I use from this society more than make up for the membership dues. I think perhaps the test prep was the most useful for me since I'm currently studying for the GRE and their offering has helped boost my practice scores significantly. Further, the recognition has helped me get interviews for some part-time positions during my year off between undergrad and grad school. Overall, I highly recommend it.
I'm very proud to be a member of honorsociety.org. It's a great honor, and has opened up the doors for me in many ways since becoming a member. I plan to pursue a job in banking, and the career information available to members was very valuable before my recent interviews. It has also been a big networking plus, and something valuable to include in resumes and cover letters. If you are invited I suggest you join.
I think HonorSociety.org accomplished its mission of helping students as described quite accurately. The membership association is a strong indication to many people, and it is a good bullet point for a resume or topic. I did access the career insider information and found that to be helpful. Overall I'm glad I joined. I do wish it was cheaper but do realize that all honors organizations have a membership fee to be a member.
I signed up with this organization when I received an email about 5 or 6 months ago. was kind of skeptic at first but went ahead and joined. I had never used anything on the site. I tried signing up for the free language course however I was unsuccessful and never could access it. I can count on one hand how many times I've actually been on this site.
Today when I got off work I seen a letter from the bank. My account was charged a second time by The Honors Society with out my permission or any notices, which caused my account to be over drawn, with an extra fee added. I was so upset. I am a full time student who works part time to support myself and pay college tuition.
When I access the site to get a refund it said to follow the 3 simple steps. However I was unable to locate the management tab. There was not a number to talk to any one. It also said to communicate with a member of the service team by clicking on the link provided. When I did it said "The default mail client is not properly installed." So to every body thinking about joining this web site, don't its a host. I'm contacting the BBB and I'll be taking other necessary actions. If you have experience some of the same issues as me please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was invited to join HonorSociety.org about a year ago, and I'm very happy I did. The recognition has made a big difference for me now that I'm graduating and looking for full-time jobs. It's a very competitive landscape right now and every award, or accomplishment, or involvement makes a big difference. Thank you.
I'm very happy I joined, and have no reservations about recommending the service. I'm very proud to be a member and glad to be recognized alongside my peers. So far it has helped me research and work towards my career goals of becoming an investment banker. Being a member of the society also helps me stand out in my career search.
To me, HonorSociety.org stands out as a superb organization to be a part of. It represents your academic success, creates new opportunities for you, and rewards you with membership perks that are actually useful. Like all reputable honor societies is does cost money to join, but the fees are used for the services they offer which are tangible. You do get a certificate when you join, and are also able to cite this group on resumes and profiles.
I joined this a few months back, and I'd have to say that I'm pretty happy I did. I added the LinkedIn group to my profile, and received a couple internship postings through that which I found worth applying to. The benefits are good too, but not the main reason why I joined (I think I've used the textbook rental and test prep discount so far). The main reason is because it connects me to like-minded people in my academic position, and to people who can help me advance. So far, so good. Will try to post an update in a few months down if I remember...
Glad I joined the society, but it could be even better. The experience has been good so far and the resume boost has been real. I think it was worth it just for that honestly. The main thing that is keeping me from giving them five stars is the fact that I was hoping they would have more benefits geared towards discounts I things I already buy. Can't complain much though, the perks are pretty good overall..
There are many good reasons to join this society, but if there is one reason that stands out to me it would be the benefits I have access to as a member. The textbook rentals have saved me about $200 in textbook fees in the past year alone. The career section is also robust. I was able to template to create a professional looking resume and cover letter. I recommend joining if you get the chance.
I don't know how there are people commenting about how great this is. IT IS A COMPLETE SCAM! Once you join, you cannot access any of the benefits, and they will charge you $50.00 a year without your permission. You cannot get them to stop unless you take drastic measures. I had to work with my bank for a year to try and get them to stop and had to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. This is not a legitimate business and they are just trying to take money from students who are not paying attention. Sure, it looks great on a resume to have an Honor Society under your list of achievements, but trust me, it's not an accomplishment; they are trying to scam you. If you need something to look good on your applications or resumes try volunteering at a homeless shelter, hospital, or planting trees. This is not a quick or safe solution.
Bottom Line: Do not give them your information, no matter how tempting their services sound. They will fraudulently charge your account. I am speaking from personal experience.
It's a useful service I was invited to join after my junior year. While initially apprehensive about the membership cost, I decided to give it a try. There membership guarantee allows members to get a refund within 60 days, so I really didn't feel there was a risk in joining. They do offer a lot of scholarships, but I have not applied for any yet because I have historically never had luck with such things. The benefits, on the other hand, are straightforward and pretty easy to redeem. So far I've used the coupon code for textbook rental discounts, the career insider information, and the restaurant gift card. I do see a benefit for remaining a member, and am looking forward to redeeming future benefits.
I received my invitation to join about a year ago, and have been a satisfied member since. They e-mail special offers, scholarship opportunities, and new benefit alerts occasionally, but nothing intrusive. I just received my HonorSociety.org graduation tassel, since I will be graduating in December. I'm proud and excited to show off this honor cord at graduation. Recommend joining.
While I was somewhat unsure about joining at first, I can now confidently saw that joining is totally worthwhile. The recognition has made a big difference in standing out for internship applications. Further, the industry guides really helped me prep for the accounting jobs I'm looking for. All in all, honorsociety.org has opened up some opportunities that would not be available for me otherwise.
Honorsociety.org has been a great influence on my academic career since I joined. Contrary to some things I've heard it is not a scam, and is very beneficial. Being part of this member society looks great on any resume, and they offer great member exclusives once you officially join.
I have only been a member since this past summer 2013. I have earned a scholarship from the honorsociety.org, gained access to other outside scholarships and other benefits. I haven't explored all the avenues that this honor society has, but I do look forward to it!
Was invited to join last semester based on making the Dean's List. I decided to join because it was recommended by a smart friend of mine. I have been pleasantly surprised by all of the included benefits of becoming a member. Once you join you immediately receive a certificate, and from there you can redeem a lot of free perks such as foreign language classes and restaurant discounts. If you are invited, take a moment to celebrate, and join! :)
I felt compelled to write this review after reading several websites calling HonorSociety.org a scam. As a member, I can tell you it is definitely not a scam! It is worth joining for the access to the career guides and job listings that members get. Also, having HonorSociety.org on my resume has been a solid boost. I think they could do a better job making it easier to navigate through the site and redeem all the perks, but other than that I'm quite happy being a member.
The main reason that I joined is for the recognition an honor society grants. It looks good to have recognition like this on your resume and even your Linkedin profile. Also, the honor society membership comes with a lot of academic benefits that make it worth the cost as well. Textbook rentals are discounted, foreign language classes, career insider access, and $25 worth of free food at a local restaurant (which I redeemed immediately).
I'm very happy to have joined. The recognition has proved to be invaluable on my resume and during my internship search. HonorSociety.org is worth it just for the access to Vault.com, which helped me land my current summer internship. Thank you.
I highly recommend HonorSociety.org with no reservations because the membership provides a lot of valuable services and content to honor students. The member benefits provide a lot of useful privileges that otherwise cost much more.
