Last week, Mercy welcomed alumnae, parents, and friends of Mercy for Career Day 2018! We had representation of a wide variety of fields, from healthcare and law enforcement to technology and financial management. The professionals hosted roundtables with three different student groups, to allow the students to engage in a range of career discussions.
Topics included day-to-day activities of the job, including highlights and hardships of their field and specific roles. They discussed paths to get in to a certain field, and the personal strengths, passions, and skills required to succeed. The roundtables wrapped up with insider advice for interested students and Q&A.
We are grateful to our community for participating in Career Day and exposing Mercy students to different potential paths!
