Talent Exchange

Mason is the primary source of talent for Northern Virginia, and as industries evolve, so do the skills graduates need to continue their careers – or start new ones.

To upskill and reskill workers for success, the university launched the Mason Talent Exchange to develop and align micro credentials, courses and certificates to meet the emerging demands of region employers.  

Workers displaced by the economic downturn of the pandemic, for example, can update or modify their skill sets to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to step into existing job vacancies in the region.  

Employers provide scholarships and experiential learning opportunities to assist in developing the workforce they need. 

Workers interested in starting companies can also benefit from no- or low-cost educational workshops, experiential technical and entrepreneurship events, and business advice from seasoned Mason staff.
