Internships & Career Panels

Sage Hill Internship Program

Exclusively for Sage Hill students and alumni, the Sage Hill Internship Program (SHIP) offers real-life, hands-on work experience and exposure to potential careers. Top professionals in a variety of fields open their workplaces to our students for summer internships and shadow days. These opportunities help students decide on possible college and career paths, and also to build their resumes for college applications. Past internships have been in the fields of law, engineering, medicine, scientific research, finance, sales and marketing, and much more. Positions are generally unpaid. 

SHIP is an opt-in program that takes about eight hours. If students complete the course, they will now earn credit on their transcripts.

Career Panels

The Parent Association is three different Career Panels throughout the 2018-2019 school year. Each will focus on career opportunities in various fields.

Students are invited to the first of three Career Panels on Wednesday, October 3 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM in the McNeill Merz Loft. The series will kick off with a focus on the various career opportunities in the medical field. Panelists include:

Rich Mills, DVM, DACVECC, who helped launch Advanced Critical Care and Internal Medicine of Los Angeles (ACCIM-LA), a specialty practice that focused on providing emergency critical care and internal medicine services for animals.
Susan Charles, a professor of psychological science and nursing science at UC Irvine.
Dr. Reg Abraham, who has been practicing cardiac and thoracic surgery for over 12 years.
Stan Rowe, corporate vice president at Edwards Lifesciences, which is the global leader in the science of heart valves and hemodynamic monitoring.

The next two Career Panels will take place on December 5 and February 13.
