We are excited to collaborate with you in helping students with their career decisions and their job and internship searches. You can make a huge difference in how prepared your students are for their future careers!
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 this exercise as homework:
- Visit the Exploring Your Options page to assist you with exploring majors, careers, and industries.
- 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.
