Supporting Career-Ready Graduates

The University Libraries are helping Mason students become career-ready graduates by providing full, complimentary access for all Mason students to a variety of career-related resources. Using their Mason log-on credentials, students can:

  • Research the companies they are interested in using Mergent Online, a collection of financial information covering over 400,000 companies. Students can read in-depth reports, follow current company news, and investigate prospective employer’s competitors in the public and private sectors.
  • Gear up for their new career with the Vault Online Career Library. Students can get industry-specific information and career advice; browse guides on resume-writing and cover letters; or search Vault’s job board for postings.
  • Organize their job search with CareerShift, a search tool that returns results from dozens of career sites and job boards. Students can search by job title, company name, keyword, and location—then save their results and manage their application documents in one place.
