Careers in Policy, Government and International Affairs
One of the most frequent questions we get is, “What kind of job can I get with a degree from your department?” The answer is: many different kinds! We’ve had alumni go on to work in the federal, state and local governments, international organizations, nonprofits, the private sector and various advocacy groups. Some of our students go on to be special agents, others go on to be financial consultants, directors, analysts and lawyers. All of our students with prestigious positions have something in common besides our major, however: they all did their homework, researched the field they were interested in and talked to both Mason’s career services and our own concentration advisors.
Mason has several additional resources for those seeking jobs. These include:
- HireMason is University Career Services’ dedicated internship and job database for Mason students and alums. Mason students and alums can find thousands of internships, part-time positions, on-campus jobs, and full-time opportunities on HireMason. They can also use HireMason to schedule on-campus interviews or create and post a resume for employers to view by using the Resume Builder tool. To get started, students can access HireMason here. New positions are being added every day, so students should sign up today and get started
- Passport Career
