O’Brien Center for Student Success

One of the most important things college can do for you is help you find a career path that is exciting, rewarding, inspiring, or all of the above. At Merrimack College, we make this easier than usual— by expanding students’ horizons while educating and inspiring them to make informed career decisions; providing access to experiential learning and full-time employment opportunities; and by linking employers to campus resources.

Finding Your Career Path

The O’Brien Center for Student Success staff offer a wealth of resources, including career fairs and panels, researching employment opportunities, on-campus interviews, and extensive one-on-one advising to help you identify your interests, explore your options, and pursue your employment or graduate study goals. 

Internships and Cooperative Education

A key element of what we offer is the chance to work in the real world while still attending classes, which is made possible through our Internship and Cooperative Education Programs. Students experience the working world first hand through paid positions in the fields that interest them, including business, nonprofit, healthcare, government, and education. Students can also gain work experience through the many internship and community service opportunities we have developed.

As you discover your own strengths and interests at Merrimack, let us help you also discover the various career options that could lead to even greater satisfaction and success after you graduate.
