Collaborative Career Fair at Sage Brings More Opportunities to STEM and Health Sciences Students



The Office of Career Planning at The Sage Colleges is among eight college and university career centers in New York’s Capital Region working together on a career fair for students studying science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the health sciences.

The colleges – Sage, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Maria College, Siena College, Skidmore College, The College of Saint Rose, University at Albany and Union College -- enroll more than 6,500 students in STEM related majors.

At Sage, 46.7 percent of students are enrolled in a STEM or Health Sciences major. “The combination of our high-quality curriculum and Sage’s career pipeline means our students graduate well-educated and well-connected,” said Christopher Ames, president of The Sage Colleges.

“This is a really important way that Sage is working with other colleges in the Capital District to support students,” said Carleen Pallante, director of career planning at Sage and chair of the Capital Region Career Consortium. “Instead of competing against each other to attract recruiters to our campuses, we are working together to showcase the Capital Region as a rich source for talented employees.”

Forty employers, including Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, New York State Information Technology Services, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority will participate. The recruiters will be looking to fill internships and full-time positions. Information about graduate programs in the Health Sciences and STEM fields will also be available. A complete list of participating employers is available here.

The STEM/Healthcare Connect Career Fair will be held on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at The Armory at Sage, Sage College of Albany 140 New Scotland Ave, Albany, N.Y. The event is free and open to all undergraduate and graduate students and alumni of the participating colleges.
