As you work toward your academic and professional goals it is important to network and learn about industries of interest. Mason Career Link is a database of alumni accessible to both students and alumni through HireMason under the networking tab. Users may search for alumni by career, major, company or job title. Alumni offer help with resume critiques, mock interviews, shadowing experiences, informational interviewing, or simply answering questions. Mason Career Link allows you to ask a fellow Patriot about their experience, network, and get advice.
