Mariner Career Connect
Pursuing a career in today’s job market can be challenging—but you don’t have to do it alone. As an MCU student or one of our alums, you have access to tools, resources and a dedicated team to help make your career goals a reality. We’ll help you start your internship/job search, make your resume and cover letters shine, and polish your interviewing and networking skills.
Because MCU views internships as an essential part of learning, you can earn academic credit for an internship.
While some of your pre-pandemic plans are deferred, there are still plenty of ways to build your résumé, grow your network and gain valuable career experience no matter your major.
No matter what’s going on in the world, The Washington Center can help you launch a career you’ll love. Explore opportunities living, working and earning credit in Washington, DC.
Real-world, hands-on experiences are not only available through internships; in fact, the very act of adapting to the limited resources and opportunities resulting from the pandemic is praiseworthy in itself!
In the working world, it’s important to look the part. MCU’s Career Closet offers students gently used business attire they can keep and wear for interviews and on the job.
