What career support did you receive from the Mason School Graduate Career Management Center (GCMC)?

GCMC was instrumental in securing my internship. Working with my advisor to interview prep. She had all the information on potential questions, interview style, etc., hence I wasn't caught unawares during my interview. Also connecting me to different people who also prepped me.

What was your internship recruitment/interview process like?

I applied online, got invited to complete an online assessment and did three more interviews and on informal chat to decide the best fit. The interview was tough, but I felt well prepared by my career advisor.
