Mason Career Influencers Network to Hold August Training for Faculty and Staff

University Career Services will offer its Career Influencer Training as a virtual workshop series in early August. The Career Influencers Network provides faculty and staff the opportunity to learn how to best support students in becoming career ready and achieving post graduate success in today’s quickly evolving world of work. In times of uncertainty, we can expect to discuss job and career plans with Mason students even more than before. Joining the Career Influencers Network will help you help students as they reflect on, refine and pursue their career goals.

The three modules that comprise the training will be offered from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., August 3 – 5. Participants must participate in ALL THREE scheduled workshops in the series to complete the training. The workshops are intended to be undertaken in the order offered, so plan to participate in the workshops on all three mornings. Course participants can expect to:

  • Learn how to work more effectively with students seeking career advice;
  • Gain knowledge of the career development process;
  • Support recruiting efforts of employers in compliance with NACE standards; and
  • Promote Handshake and other digital career resources available to Mason students to support their job and internship search.

Upon completion of the training, participants will receive a certificate of completion and the Career Readiness Toolkit, a collection of activities, rubrics, and templates to facilitate connections between students’ academic experiences and their career goals. Members of the Career Influencers Network also receive invitations to Lunch & Learns for on-going professional development and updates on career related programs and services.
