What We Do for Students

  1. Career Coach is a free online search tool in which you can explore potential academic majors and careers. Select a career that suits your interests and learn about educational requirements, job prospects and wages - all localized to this region. You'll also get to view current job postings in the area and develop your own resume.

    Career Coach provides valuable information to help you set your career goals:

    Education: The educational requirements for a career and the specific programs Mercer offers to help you start on your career path

    Employment Trends: The number of jobs in the area in a specific occupation and recent employment trends in that field, providing you with insight into the prospects for employment once you complete your education

    Earnings: Regional wage information for specific careers, giving you an overview of the earning potential in that field

    Job Postings: Current regional job postings, providing you with a better understanding about jobs in the field and what employers are looking for in their employees

    Resume Builder: A tool that helps you create your own resume, tapping into expert advice on how to best present yourself to future employers

    If after using Career Coach, you are still undecided about a choice of major or career, you should take Focus-2, a longer, more in-depth career assessment tool and/or schedule an appointment to meet with a Career Counselor at 609-570-3397.
