Hear from past interns

Working at Merck Canada as an Analyst within the Financial Planning & Analysis team was an experience that launched my professional career. In addition to working with a dynamic team, I had the opportunity to build a new dashboard tool to reflect the financial health of the company – something that had not been done before. I truly felt that my work had an impact on the team itself, and within Merck Canada as a whole. A big thank you again for this unforgettable experience!

My internship with the Policy team has been an invaluable hands-on experience that helped me develop the tools and skills to advance my career in the field. I had the opportunity to collaborate with inspiring and committed people who have patients at heart and who made themselves available throughout the summer. Merck is an incredible company that truly values interns and creates a sense of belonging.
