Meet some of our graduates

Why did you choose the Global Graduate Program at Merck? 

​​​​​​​Coming out of graduate school, I wanted to work in consulting for a while to further explore different functional areas in healthcare and life sciences, without the typical external consulting lifestyle. The Global Graduate Program at Merck offered the perfect opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects while also building strong relationships within the company to prepare my transfer into the business. 
Jessalyn Kohn US Office
What are your typical responsibilities at work? There are no "typical responsibilities“, all tasks are project-, customer- and subject-dependent, but some partially recurring activities for Graduates include: Quantitative and qualitative analysis, stakeholder & project management, research & interview conduction and insight generation & communication.
Alexander Ficht Darmstadt Office
How would you describe your job? There is never really a dull moment! Shifting projects every 3-4 months provides a constant learning curve to satisfy my curiosity. On top of that, I get to co-create solutions with other Merck colleagues from a diverse background and culture. It’s amazing how much talent we have across the organization!
