Parents & Families
As a parent or family member of a Merrimack College student, you have an impact on your student’s career development. In fact, students often identify their family members as one of the primary sources of career information and support. Please explore our web site, and encourage your student to connect with the O’Brien Center for Student Success early on in their Merrimack career.
Because students rely heavily on their family members for career information and support, we encourage parents and families to learn more about the resources and services we offer to our students so they will find it easy to transition from student to working professional. Students are able to find job postings and career event information on Advantage.There are also various different online resources to aid students in the exploration of different career options such as Vault, Going Global, and O*Net. Lastly, Career Events are held on and off campus through out the year and are designed to expose students to the 21st century work force.
Below are links to our eMpower Career and Professional Development Plan, a listing of different actions and steps your student should take during their four years at Merrimack College.
