Does a Greek affiliation really
help in the real world?

Standard fraternity/sorority selling points include how much your affiliation will help you get a job/advance your career/etc. Have there been any studies about the legitimacy of this idea? Though I admit my field is self-selected for nerdy and artsy types, most adults I know are loathe to admit they ever pledged and are quite embarrassed about it if they did. Are there certain fields that going Greek helps with more than others? Looking more for studies than anecdotes.
