The  Career Development  Manager assists the Executive Board in its efforts to explain admission requirements and recruit qualified students to become a part of the organization.

Within Sigma Alpha Delta, the  Career Development Manager is responsible for placing members in committees of their choice, based on positions available, and seeking solutions to any conflicts that result. The Career Development   Manager tracks each member, prospective and inducted, using computerized records and works to keep each member on track to full induction, graduation with honors and post-graduation employment.
