Do I Need to Sign Up or Register?

No registration is required for students to attend this event. Simply stop by the Johnson Center first floor Atrium in the food court on the HireMason Kiosk Days and introduce yourself to employers!

In addition to visiting the kiosks, log in to HireMason, operated by University Career Services, to browse plenty of job opportunities both on- and off-campus. Please note that the jobs and employers listed in HireMason are not necessarily what will be present at the kiosks. A list of HireMason Kiosk participants is provided below.

What Do I Bring?

You only need to bring copies of your resume and a smile!

How Should I Dress?

It’s always a good idea to dress nicely when interacting with potential employers, but since the HireMason Kiosks will be set up in the Johnson Center Atrium during lunchtime with crowds of students and visitors relaxing and hanging out in the space, the event is very casual, and you will not be expected to wear what you would to a full job interview. However, when you pick your outfit that day, keep in mind that you do want to make a good impression.

For Employers

GMU Student Centers is inviting prospective employers to reserve our kiosks in the Johnson Center to promote their employment opportunities to GMU students. Would you like to be a part of this recruiting opportunity?

Employers set up at the kiosks in the Johnson Center Atrium on the first floor. Students can approach the kiosks to speak with you about your job opportunities and provide their resumes. The HireMason Kiosk Days are great exposure for employers looking to get the word out about their jobs and for students who are hunting down employment.

The fee to reserve a kiosk on a HireMason Kiosk day is $80 for both for- and non-profit external organizations. The flat $80 fee will allow you to reserve a kiosk for no more than 8 hours. Student Centers will advertise that 11:00 am – 2:00 pm is the time during which employers will be present at the kiosks, but you may request to use the kiosk for up to 8 hours.

Use of a kiosk on a HireMason Day for Mason departments is free for up to 4 hours of use.

Why Should I Participate?

  • One-on-one interaction with students. Setting up at kiosks allow you to interact directly with excited students who approach the kiosks, learn about their interests, and shake hands.
  • High visibility to students. Each HireMason Day takes place at the kiosks in the Johnson Center Atrium. The Johnson Center, full of food, lounge space, and resources, sees thousands of visitors every day. The kiosks are located in the Atrium’s food court, where many students and visitors gather to eat and socialize, primarily during the hours of 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. A larger crowd means more people to learn about your employment opportunities!

Student Centers requires that all HireMason Kiosk Day participants have a current job posting in the database. This provides verification that you are an employer and allows students to apply to your position online in addition to speaking with you at the kiosk. Contact Career Services at (703) 993-2370 for assistance with putting jobs on HireMason.
  2. Request a kiosk. All HireMason participants must officially request their kiosk space. Please visit our kiosks page to learn about the process of reserving a kiosk.

  3. Provide necessary documentation and payment to Student Centers. External organizations must provide a valid business license, tax form, or other documentation that establishes them as a legitimate business no later than three business days PRIOR to the kiosk reservation start date. HireMason Kiosk Day participants must also be able to provide proof that they have a job posting on HireMason.
