Appointment No Show and Late Cancellation Policy

A combination of three "Same Day Cancellations" or "No Shows" will result in the inability to make appointments with School of Business Career Services staff for the remainder of the semester in which the violations occur.

Handshake Policies

About Handshake

Handshake is Mason's source for jobs, internships, employment advice, and career fair details. Only current students and alumni can log in to Handshake using their PatriotPass credentials. If you are a student or alumni and cannot access Handshake please call our office at (703) 993-2140 or email mycareer@gmu.edu.

Handshake Application Policy

If you notice you "Do Not Qualify" for a position of interest listed on Handshake, you may petition Career Services to manually be added to the applicant pool. Email mycareer@gmu.edu with the following information.

  • Job ID Number listed in Handshake (you may send more than one).
  • A copy of your transcript from any previous institutions.
  • If you are not using your default resume, please indicate which document you prefer to submit to the employer.

After reviewing your information, Career Services will inform you of the status of the application.

Accepting a Job or Internship Offer

If you accept a job or internship offer, withdraw any outstanding applications with other employers immediately. If you are invited to an interview after you have accepted an offer either verbally or in writing, you must decline the interview and inform the employer that you have accepted a position with another company/agency/firm. To do otherwise is a serious breach of ethics.

Unprofessional Communication Policy

Unprofessional or inappropriate communication via email or in-person will not be tolerated by the School of Business. Students who have been found to use unprofessional or inappropriate communication with an employer, academic advisor, faculty, or staff member may be reported to Career Services; violators will be immediately blocked from Handshake. Students found in violation of this policy will have five business days to contact Kerry Willigan, assistant dean of Career Services, to rectify the situation.

On-Campus Interviewing No Show and Late Cancellation Policy

Failing to attend, or failing to cancel a scheduled on-campus interview 48 business hours in advance will result in being blocked from Handshake and the On-Campus Interviewing program. Please contact our office at (703) 993-2140 or mycareer@gmu.edu to regain access to Handshake and the On-Campus Interviewing program. Should a second offense occur you will be permanently blocked from both Handshake and the On-Campus Interviewing program.

Internship or Full-Time Job Offer Renege Policy

Reneging on an offer with an employer will result in being blocked from Handshake and the On-Campus Interviewing program. To renege is to go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract. In this context you have verbally or contractually agreed to commit to a job or internship offer and then withdrew. To regain access to Handshake you must contact Kerry Willigan, Assistant Dean of Career Services, within five business days of being notified to rectify the situation
