Be a Marymount Maximizer   

Being a "maximizer" involves educating yourself on how to make the most out of an experience and then actually DOING those things. Being a "Marymount Maximizer" involves recognizing all of the amazing personal and professional growth opportunities the MU experience has to offer and then taking advantage of as many of these opportunities as possible while you are here!

Marymount truly provides an ideal environment for students to explore, prepare, and connect with a meaningful career - knowledgeable professors everywhere; fun and engaging academic and community activities abound; service-learning and internship opportunities each semester... the list goes on! While educating yourself about such career development resources is key, purposefully making use of these resources and doing so consistently is the only way to fully experience their benefit.

Tips for Making the Most Out of Your Time at Marymount
  • Really get to know your professors
  • Find a mentor and be a mentor to others 
  • Get involved with student groups and attend campus activities early and often 
  • Volunteer in the community and explore DC 
  • Take a wide variety of courses that interest you 
  • Do an internship (or two, or three) outside of your required Marymount internship
  • Consider doing a study abroad program
  • Take advantage  of the support offered by each student development office  
  • Attend Career Services events each semester
  • Meet new people and try new things  
  • Go to the Making College Work Workshop next Thursday, September 27th, for more maximizing tips!

Keep it Professional
Your Bi-Weekly Tip to Making a Positive Impression
The difference between a mediocre resume and an
awesome resume has everything to do with how you describe your experiences.  Don't just bullet point basic duties - describe the
transferable skills you developed while doing them! This helps you appear more relevant and, thus, more employable.
Watch a short career video relevant to YOU at your  stage. New videos every edition!

Connector Career Byte

At Marymount, we are always looking for new ways to help our students succeed in an increasingly global and high-tech economy.
For instance, just this fall, Marymount launched four new undergraduate minors (French, Spanish, Sustainability, & Writing) and a new undergraduate certificate program (Computer Networking & Cybersecurity) to give students the right tools for success in today's workplace.

Stay in the loop by regularly reading Marymount publications to make sure you don't miss out on these great opportunities!
