Join PTK and Get Competitive Edged!

by Erica Nieves
         Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society that recruits the brightest students and promote scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and community service. As a daughter of a PTK alumni, I was excited when I was offered membership. When I accepted membership and went into my new member orientation, I knew this was something special. The PTK program offered many different benefits; one memorably is a special program called the Five Star Competitive Edge.
          The Competitive Edge is a leadership online course that has five levels. In each level, there is a buildup of a set skills that one will learn. For example, in the first level of the Competitive Edge, “soft skills,” “reflecting in a journal entry,” and “fixed versus growth mindset” were taught. After a set of skills is learned, one must pass a quiz in order in order to move forward within the program. Aside from learning about different skills, one must prepare for a mini Honors in Action (HIA) paper. This is called the Honors Study Case. Starting from level two, the Honors Study Case is first mentioned, as it’s required to submit in order to complete the Competitive Edge program.
          This course is beneficial, as it prepares the individual before they go into a job interview and even before they’re starting their career. I highly recommend joining and completing the Five Star Competitive Edge program!
