Three Students Stories of For-Credit Internship, Independent Internship & Co-op Success

May 02, 2013
There are a multitude of opportunities that engage Merrimack students with professional and career-driven experiences. The O’Brien Center for Student Success has resources to assist you in your internship and co-op search.. Here are just a few of the students who have taken advantage of these opportunities at their disposal.

MARIA RUSSO, BUSINESS MAJOR/COMMUNICATIONS MINOR, CLASS OF 2014

Event Planning Internship at the O’Brien Center for Student Success at Merrimack College

“I have been exposed to real life business scenarios where concepts I have learned in the classroom apply first hand, I have gained confidence in myself as a communicator and a leader in a business setting, and I have made valuable professional connections.”

COLIN CUNNIFF, CIVIL ENGINEERING MAJOR/ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES & SUS. MINOR, CLASS OF 2014

Project Engineer Co-op at Archer Western Contractors

“Although you are in college for additional time to do co-op, it is a benefit because it provides you with hands on experience and increases your chances for a full time post-graduate opportunity. You get a true education on the language used in the industry. As a professional you will be expected to know the terms and language. Doing a co-op provides you with that education.”

 BOBBY DISORBO, ENGLISH MAJOR/PRE-LAW & GENDER STUDIES MINOR, CLASS OF 2014

Independent Marketing Internship at the O’Brien Center for Student Success at Merrimack College

The experience has already proved invaluable as I landed a paid Marketing internship just three weeks into my work for the O’Brien Center. I never would have gotten it if I did not have the specific experience to cite as reason why I could be a good fit with my new employer.”
