Job Shadowing
Volunteers for the Job Shadowing Program will host a student who would like to explore the career of a specific alumni. The volunteer will be matched with a student who is interested in their career, and will allow the student to shadow them for a few hours or a full day. Sage Career Counselors will match students and alumnae/i volunteers. Specific arrangements will be made by the participating student and volunteer alumni.

Career Panels
The Career Panels will take place during Career Week for students of The Sage Colleges. Participating alumnae/i volunteers will share information about their career with college and high school students. Each panel will consist of between 4 and 5 members all representing a different aspect of a career area, e.g., Computer Science, and lasts for approximately one hour. This is also an opportunity for Sage Admissions to meet with high school students on the campus.

Internship Panel
During Career Week, Career Services at RSC hosts an Internship Panel that includes current interns, past interns, and employers/alumni. These volunteers offer their time and expertise to discuss the ins and outs of internships with our Sage students. We welcome volunteers from all career fields to take part in this informal gathering, and are always on the lookout for new internship sites for our students. If you can help in any way please contact Career Services at (518) 244-2272. "We'd love to hear from you!"

Career Expo
If you're interested in recruiting new employees from among the students of The Sage Colleges and/or surrounding communities, you are invited to participate in our annual job fair. Just give us a call at 518.244.2272 and we'll send you our brochure and registration form. Please feel free to pass the word around to other employers who may also be interested in participating.

Site Visit Leads
Wherever you work, you may have a potential and valuable internship and/or job opportunity for a Sage student. We would like to arrange a site visit to discuss these possibilities.
