I’m here to share a very special resource the Career Development team has been working on since the quarantine began. We realized that students may have lost their jobs and wanted to put together a list of jobs that are in high need during the pandemic. This list includes many healthcare jobs if you wish to work on the front lines, whether that be as a Nurse’s Aide or someone who cleans and sanitizes the hospitals, both important in their own way. This list also includes jobs in grocery stores, delivery services, pharmacies, and so on. If you are looking for work, please browse this list and apply to any positions you are qualified for. I have also included some resources about food pantries, child care centers, and career development resources. As always, please reach out to us for any help with finding a job or internship. We are continuously updating this list, which can be found here.
We are here for you! CPD@Mercy.edu
Stay safe and healthy!
