Spring 2017: Monday, February 6 through Friday, April 28

The On-Campus Interviewing Program provides a simple way for students to interview on campus for career-related positions with employers from the DC Metro area and across the cross country for full-time, part-time, and internship positions.

Employers visiting campus have targeted Mason as a top institution for their hiring needs and travel to campus to make interviewing convenient and accessible to our students. All Mason degree-seeking undergraduate, graduate students and alumni are eligible to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program. Screening criteria, including major, GPA, and work authorization for each position is set by the employer.

No Show and Late Cancellation Policy

Failing to attend OR failing to cancel a scheduled on-campus interview 48 business hours in advance of your interviewing time will result in your being blocked from HireMason and the On-Campus Interviewing Program.

No Show and Late Cancellation Policy Details

First Offense: Temporarily Blocked
If you fail to keep a scheduled interview with an employer or fail to cancel 48 business hours in advance, you will be blocked from the On-Campus Interviewing Program AND from all HireMason usage until you follow these steps:

  1. Set up a meeting with your Industry Advisor as soon as possible to discuss your absence
  2. Write an apology letter to the employer within 24 hours of speaking with your Industry Advisor
  3. Email your apology letter to Grant Haver, Employer Relations Coordinator. Once approved, the apology letter will be forwarded to the employer.

Your HireMason account will then be reactivated, and you may continue to use the system and participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program.

Second Offense: Permanently Blocked
If you fail to keep a scheduled interview with an employer a second time, you will be blocked from HireMason and dismissed from the On-Campus Interview Program permanently.

This includes removal of your resume from consideration for any pending interviews and removal of your name from any already scheduled interviews.

You may petition to regain access to HireMason by speaking to your Industry Advisor, however you will not be permitted to participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program.

Why so strict?
Strong relationships between Mason and local employers are built upon successful recruiting efforts. When a student cancels an on-campus interview in an untimely manner or fails to show up entirely, this damages our relationship with employers. Damaged relationships can lead to a loss of resources and access to future opportunities for Mason students.

Offer Renege Policy

To renege is to go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract. In this context it means that you verbally or contractually committed to a job offer and then withdrew on that promise. Reneging on an offer with an employer will result in your being blocked from HireMason and the On-Campus Interviewing Program.
Offer Renege Policy Details

You will remain permanently blocked from the On-Campus Interviewing Program, however you may petition to regain access to HireMason. To petition, set up a meeting with your Industry Advisor within 30 days of having reneged on an offer. If we do not hear from you within 30 days, your HireMason account will be permanently blocked

Should a second reneging offense occur after reinstatement, you will be permanently blocked from HireMason without opportunity for petition.
