As part of Spring into Well-Being, Human Resources/Payroll and University Life invite you to share some career advice with the Mason community. Answer the following question: What one thing do you know now that you wish you knew when you first started out in your career?

The goal is to build an online resource that offers guidance and support, no matter where we are in our careers. This is an opportunity to share part of your career journey and light the path for those coming after you.

Participating is easy! For details, visit the Spring into Well-Being website.
