As a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), we have found their practices to be extremely helpful in working with students, employers, and other universities. 

You may find the NACE Faculty Guide on the legal and ethical standards in student hiring helpful as well.

Recommend On-Campus Interviewing to Your Students

Employers are coming to campus, and they want to interview Mason students for jobs and internships! Through our On-Campus Interviewing Program, employers post positions in Handshake and then conduct interviews for those positions right in University Career Services.

Questions about the On-Campus Interviewing Program? Contact Christie Michals, Employer Relations Coordinator.

Refer Employers

Do you receive job and internship opportunities for students? Or requests for presentations from employers? We can help! Connect with our staff to help spread the word and organize events.
