    Should I join

    Silly question, I guess. Is this worth joining? Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

    I have a high enough GPA to be a member and have been ask. What I am wondering, is would it really help anything? Would it look good on my transcripts? Resume?

    Thoughts? Opinions?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    yeah, join, it looks nice on your resume if you plan on working for someone else. Unless you're planning on being self-employed, then it doesn't matter.

    I think you should, the networking possibilities should be worth it.

    No downsides to joining, only up. I'd say go for it.
