The O'Brien Center for Career Development is open, but all services have moved to online or virtual options. Please email or click here for more details.


As a first-generation college student, you likely have a lot of questions about accessing resources to promote your career development. The O’Brien Center for Career Development is here to help at all stages of the process. Within this affinity group, we have collected a variety of resources to help guide you along. Resources will cover common frustrations or concerns seen by first-generation college students, financial resources in the form of Merrimack offices or scholarship websites, as well as identifying organizations on and off campus you may find of interest.
