University Career Services is excited to offer this Spring Multi-Day Cohort of our Career Influencers Network. This three part series will allow faculty, staff, and administrators across campus to come together to learn how to best support students as they strive to become career ready and achieve post graduate success. Supporting the career readiness of students is a top priority for the President and Provost as outlined in the institution’s strategic plan. Faculty, staff, and administrators all possess a shared responsibility in producing 100,000+ career ready Mason graduates by 2024.
Through the implementation of the Career Influencers Network, University Career Services accepts a centralized role in coordinating, educating and supporting the growth of a network and community across campus dedicated to the career readiness of Mason students. With your support, the George Mason University community can work together to ensure successful outcomes for thousands of students pursuing degrees at Mason.
