Another annual session for Sage Hill Internship Program (SHIP) has started, with various changes and improvements added to the program to offer students the best preparation for the business world.

“This year’s SHIP is hopefully a little more streamlined through the whole process,” junior Alice Warden, who is deeply involved in organizing SHIP, said. “One of the biggest changes has been to the Canvas page to help avoid confusion. From what we have seen so far, there has been a great improvement in the quality of resumes compared to that of last year.”

SHIP is exclusively offered to Sage Hill students and alumni.  As part of the program, professionals from various fields offer their experiences and tips to students looking to dive deeper into their potential career interests.

To apply for internships via SHIP, students must complete a multi-step process involving building their own resume, attending resume workshops, and submitting various assignments on Canvas where they will be educated on the hiring process.

“Resume workshops are where students learn about what a resume is and what employers really look for,” Warden said. “These are very critical because they provide the basic skills for developing a resume.”

After the resume, “comes the second round of resume workshops where students get to have their resume reviewed by a professional who is involved in the hiring process on a regular basis,” Warden said. And finally, “there is a mock interview where students get to experience and practice the feeling of having to answer interview questions spontaneously.”

Sage Hill has established multiple connections to various professionals willing to help run SHIP.

“Most of the internships that we get are through parents in different fields and alumni who have offered opportunities to Sage students,” Warden said.

SHIP will continue throughout the school year.

“We have not heard much feedback yet about the new program because it has just started, but we hope that the new format will help avoid confusion for students and parents,” Warden said.
