Welcome to CAPX

We prepare?and empower?students and alums?to build fulfilling and sustainable creative careers.


Handshake is Now Live to Students and Alums!




We're very pleased to announce that SAIC has joined?Handshake, the college career network of the future!

Through Handshake—which replaces SAIC Compass and SAIC Launch On-Campus—students can search for jobs, internships, and other off-campus employment opportunities; find on-campus jobs; receive personalized career recommendations; and connect with employers. Additionally, advising with CAPX will now be scheduled through Handshake, allowing students to sign up to meet with a career advisor and submit their materials for review directly through the platform.

Visit our Handshake page to learn more about what the platform provides for students, alums, and employers posting employment opportunities to the platform.?We invite all faculty and staff to encourage students to use Handshake and to familiarize themselves with the platform’s benefits. View a quick video about Handshake here.
