Student Worker Inquiry

EMPAC is one of the largest employers of students on the Rensselaer campus and uses an “apprenticeship model” to train student workers. From the box office to the front-of-house staff, production, curatorial, and administrative teams, there are many opportunities for students to work on EMPAC productions and learn a variety of fields within the high-tech performing arts.

Stage Technologies — Lights…Staging…Action! Come work with our Stage Technologies team on a variety of tasks including: setting up chairs and tables; assisting with the construction and assembly of staging, scenery and audience seating configurations; hanging and focusing stage lighting equipment; programming computerized lighting consoles; and so much more!



Artist Services— The Artist Services/Administration work requires attention to detail, and a high level of professionalism and customer service in dealing with EMPAC guests. The work consists of a variety of administrative tasks, possible driving assignments (if age 21), and routine tasks associated with guest services, hospitality, and logistic coordination.
