Fall 2017: September 11 - November 17

The On-Campus Interviewing Program provides a convenient way for employers to interview students on Mason's Fairfax campus for career-related positions including for full-time, part-time, and internship positions.

All Mason degree-seeking undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni are eligible to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program. Screening criteria, such as major, GPA, and work authorization, are set by you, the employer.

University Career Services will also work with you to promote your positions to our students and faculty. Connect with your assigned Industry Advisor to develop a recruiting strategy at Mason.

Steps to Participating in On-Campus Interviewing

Step 1: Pick a Date

Log in to HireMason. Select "Create New Schedule Request" and one of these schedule options:

Select this option to reserve interviewing space, post a position with set screening criteria, review submitted resumes, and invite candidates to select an interviewing time on your schedule.

Preselect to Alternate
Select this option to reserve interviewing space, post a position with set screening criteria, review submitted resumes, and invite TWO tiers of candidates to select an interviewing time on your schedule. Once preselect students select a time to interview, your schedule will open to candidates you selected as alternates.

Room Reservation Only
Select this option to reserve interviewing space only. We will reserve a room for your use while you create your own interviewing schedule. All interviews must be scheduled to begin no earlier than 8:45 a.m. and to end by 4:30 p.m. Employers often select this option if they would like to ensure a room reservation but fill their schedule with candidates met at a particular event they are attending on campus such as the Career Fair.

Select this option to post a position and allow qualified students to sign-up for interview times on a first-come, first-served basis. Unlike the Preselect and Preselect to Alternate schedules which allow you to pre-screen candidates, the open schedule allows students to immediately sign-up for an interviewing slot upon submitting their resume.

Step 2: Post a Position

Fill out the remainder of the request by attaching your available position(s). You will receive a confirmation email when your request is received and again when it is approved.

Step 3: Receive Applicants

If you selected a Preselect or Preselect to Alternate schedule, applicants will begin submitting their resume in your HireMason account for your position(s). If you have a Room Only schedule, you will not receive any applications via the system.

Step 4: Invite Students to Interview

Once the Resume Submission Deadline has passed, you will have a three-day Employer Selection Period to review resumes and invite students to select a time to interview with you by changing their application status to Invited, Alternate, or Not Invited.

Recruiting Policies

Please review our Recruiting Policies that apply to all employers recruiting at George Mason University as well as the On-Campus Interviewing specific policies below.

On-Campus Interviewing Participation Agreement
  •  Organizations must post bona fide jobs or internships
  • Applicant resumes will be transmitted on the condition that parties outside of the organization will not be permitted access to those resumes without the written consent of the applicant.
Note: Third party agents or agencies are not eligible to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program.
Schedule Cancellation Policy
Just as we require students to provide cancellation notice when they meet with you, we also require recruiters to provide a minimum of 48 hours notice if they are unable to conduct their On-Campus Interviews.

Once the Schedule Close Date has passed (and interviews are set), if an employer is unable to follow through with their scheduled date and are unable to schedule a new date with University Career Services, they are responsible to contact the interviewees directly to explain the situation and to find a time to reschedule the interviews they extended to the candidates.
