Mason Talent Exchange

Mason partners with regional employers to provide educational resources targeted at filling needs and creating upskilling opportunities for experienced professionals. 

Employers throughout the region are confronting a shortage of critical skills needed to meet marketplace demands. Many highly-educated professionals and degree holders are finding that they lack the desired skills for re-entering the post-pandemic workforce.

The Mason Talent Exchange (MTE) seeks employers who want to:

  • Contribute to the region's economic vitality
  • Innovate rapid upskilling for experienced talent
  • Hire experienced, degree-holding professionals
  • Support transitioning workers
  • Employ individuals prepared for security clearance
