Alex Smith - Sage Institute of Fitness

Critical to the success of our wonderful Sage education programs, and helping you to achieve your career dreams, are the Sage Career Agents! Career Agents guide the students through their training and help each student with their personal career goals.

When they are not hands on with the students, Career Agents are out and about around Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, developing and maintaining industry partnerships.  These partnerships give Sage students access to great places to undertake their practical placements  and update our Career websites with the latest jobs. In addition to this, your Career Agent also organises career and recruitment events so that the students can meet and greet relevant industry partners.

Phew, that sure makes your Career Agent a busy individual! But such an important one for you to get to know…
