Career Services

Mercer’s Office of Career Management Services provides resources to help current students and alumni succeed as professionals in the workplace. Our expert University staff and consultants design programs and modules that benefit students, alumni, employers, and recruiters. We prepare students to master essential workplace skills and demonstrate initiative that will benefit them in any business environment.

Schedule an appointment

Whether you’re a current student or alumnus and need assistance with your résumé, practicing your interviewing skills, consulting about job search strategies, or figuring out where to start in your search, our team is here to help.

Get started by scheduling an appointment with our team in Handshake. Appointments can be made to meet in person or over the phone.

Alumni engagement

We encourage our employed alumni to engage with us in a hiring capacity, to recruit and engage our students, or to connect us to the talent acquisition contacts who may be able to utilize the talent that we have here.

Hire a Mercer intern or graduate

You were once here, so you know exactly how eager our students are to find internship and employment opportunities. Contact us and make an e-introduction to your HR/Talent Acquisition lead.

Start an internship program

Internship programs are excellent experiential learning opportunities for students, and also a valuable resource for employers as a pipeline of talent and an avenue for innovative, fresh ideas.

Mercer business students are equipped with the knowledge and skillset needed to serve as valuable team members to any company or organization—including yours. If you have never hired an intern, why not start now?

Engage with our students

Our students are eager to engage with employers and get firsthand insight about their careers, but it makes even more of an impact when it’s a Mercer alum returning to speak to them. Our current students can relate to your time spent at Mercer and aspire to your level of success.

Opportunities to engage with current Mercer business students include:

  • Coordinate an on-site visit at your work location
  • Participate in a speaking engagement on campus. We host employer panels, and a variety of engagement events for students to learn about career options and best practice.
  • Offer expertise during mock interviews and career development workshops
