Five ways to connect classroom to career:
Review our appointment options and recommend that your students connect with us.
Talk with your students about how important it is to start thinking about their goals and options after graduation. Consider assigning students this exercise as homework:
Search for 10 jobs you want and note the requirements and specific skills needed for those jobs. Investigate how you can gain those skills at Mason and practice them in your courses.
Suggest that your students get involved on campus in a group or club, emphasizing that it is a great way to start building a resume.
Urge your students to obtain at least one internship before graduation and share with them the impact an internship can have on their career.
Refer your students to career workshops and events where they can interact with our career staff and employers.
Attend the Fair with your class
You are invited to attend the Career Fair each semester! Please ensure your students are professionally dressed and ready to meet employers.
Use our Prepare for the Fair (PPT) - a 5 minute presentation - to provide students with tips on how to make a great first impression.
