Need to get a resume or cover letter reviewed?
No need to make an appointment for that!
To have your resume or cover letter reviewed, just email it to us at email@example.com, and include a link to the job or program description. A Peer Career Advisor will review your document and provide feedback by email within two business days.
Please let us know if you need accommodations by contacting us at 703-993-2370 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will either make the necessary arrangements or direct you to the best office for support in making the accommodations.
Missing an appointment without providing University Career Services sufficient notice prevents other Mason students and alumni from meeting with us at that time. You can cancel or reschedule your appointment through Handshake or by contacting us at 703-993-2370.
