Our Industry Approach
Here at Mason, our career model may be a little different than what you've experienced at other universities. We listened to employer feedback over the years and heard that "major" does not equal "career." So we shifted the way we operate to an Industry Focused Approach.We created an Industry Advising and Employer Development (IAED) Team composed of Industry Advisors, who have each been assigned a cluster of industries. On a day to day basis, our Industry Advisors meet with students who have selected one of their industries as their industry of interest. Industry Advisors are also responsible for employer development in those same industries. In addition, our Industry Advisors partner with faculty and staff across campus.
All that to say, you get personalized attention from staff who regularly interact with students and know specifically what you do! Each employer who recruits at Mason is assigned to an Industry Advisor based on their organization's industry.
