Here’s Why the MSMC Career Center Rocks

Ask graduating seniors which offices impacted their time on campus the most, and you’re sure to always have many people mention the Career Center.

It makes sense. The Career Center holds so much responsibility for helping students succeed. From professional development to career counseling to preparing for graduate school to finding an internship to sprucing up resumes…goodness, I’m out of breath just listing off some of their responsibilities!

But what really makes the Career Center at the Mount incredible is the staff. They are truly such an amazing group of people who work tirelessly to help us all succeed and let us know there is always someone in our corner cheering for us. From the director, Kathleen O’Keefe, who was recognized as a pillar of the Mount this year; to Heather Fitzsimmons, who was one of Dutchess County’s Forty Under 40 recipients; to Ellen Bourhis-Nolan, who runs so many workshops to help students be prepared for jobs or graduate school; to Robin Rosenberg, who is so involved on campus and in the community; to the always bubbly Megan Rossi ’13, who returned to the Mount community after volunteering in the Peace Corps; to the incredible Regina Eisenbacher, who keeps everything organized and always has a smile for everyone. It’s just an incredible group!

But don’t just take my word for it: So many of our students rave about the Career Center that we wanted to collect it all in one place.


The Career Center went above and beyond to help me. Mrs. O’Keefe (the Career Center director) helped me create and polish my resume, and she arranged interviews at a newspaper and a publishing company. These internships really helped focus my resume and give me experience in my field, which went a long way. The Mount is the main reason I found what I wanted in a career.” — Courtney Fahy ’14, editorial assistant at Little Bee Books

Mount Saint Mary College’s spring Nursing Class of 2018

As members of the Mount Saint Mary College’s Class of 2018 prepare to walk across the stage at graduation in just a few weeks, there’s one thing Colin Cassidy doesn’t have to worry about – finding a job.

That’s because the senior Nursing major has already landed a position as an emergency room nurse at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut.

Here’s what Colin had to say about finding this job, the Nursing major, and his Mount experience as a whole:

“I have really enjoyed my past four years here at the Mount. The School of Nursing has really gone above and beyond to make my experience and education the best it can be. Between the exceptional staff and the diverse range of clinical experiences, the Mount has given me every opportunity to learn and grow into the type of nurse I want to be. Continue Reading

Why intern?

by

As a Mount student, you’ve probably heard about the benefits of interning before, but today, we’re going to let our #SuperInterns tell you in their own words why doing an internship was the best part of their college experience.

More than classes

“I worked as a clinical assistant at Montefiore Medical Center assisting patients with basic care needs and helping my preceptor with anything she needed. I learned that I can handle a lot more than I originally thought, and that nursing is more than just knowing medications and diseases, but also being there for people emotionally. Having this experience also taught me that teamwork and communication are everything in life. If you are thinking about interning, DO IT! It was the greatest opportunity of my life! You get to experience what your future career will be like and learn so much more than what classes and college can teach you! You will find so much more confidence about graduating and beginning your future career. Would I intern again? 100x yes!!!!!!” – Aideen Ginty ’18, Nursing major Continue Reading
