FROM SERVICE TO SCIENCE

Continue your mission of improving lives everywhere.

Pride, respect and a greater sense of purpose are just some of the traits that drew you to the military. As you transition to civilian life, those traits combined with the discipline, teamwork and leadership skills you've earned can continue to impact the lives of people in ways that truly matter – through a career with Merck.

We offer numerous resources – including our Veterans Roundtable, an employee network designed to help you adjust to corporate life, to make your transition smooth and your work-life rewarding.

With our generous military-friendly policies, we've received accolades from several organizations such as GI Jobs, Military Times Edge, and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

 

In 2010, we received the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, which is the highest recognition given by the U.S. government to employers for their outstanding support of their employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.

Merck is also a proud member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of employers whose collective goal is to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020.
