College of Business

“The finance degree I received from Franklin Pierce gave me the credibility I need when I speak with my clients. It also gave me a tremendous background of key information I use on the daily, in and out of the office. The personal connections I made with the faculty and staff allowed me to get the guidance I needed to find out what path was right for me.”

- Tom Arisco ’18, Insurance Agent, Banker’s Life


College of Health & Natural Sciences

“My colleagues and I come from the industries we serve, enabling us to understand job requirements on a deeper level than others in the industry. I myself have a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from Franklin Pierce and am able to use my experiences and background knowledge from the life sciences to relate to the candidates I speak with and build trust.”

- Brianna Nash ’12, Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical Technology, and Digital Marketing, Search Consultant at HireMinds


College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences

My communications degree from Franklin Pierce helped me in my career by allowing me to do hands-on work on the very first day. There was no wait time to be able to start learning, which allowed me to develop my skills and enhance others that I did not have coming out of high school.”

- Sean Ellertson ’18, Sports Reporter & Editor for St. James Plain Dealer Newspaper
