Career Exploration


The O’Brien Center for Career Development encourages Merrimack students to use Focus2, an electronic platform designed to assist students with their personal and professional development through the use of assessments and associated resources.

To take the career assessments, create an account and use your Merrimack email as your ID.  Students will be asked for a license code and you will enter the following code: Warriors.
