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, this summer! Beginning Monday, June 17, Handshake will be available to students and alums as the one-stop shop for career and internship opportunities.
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.

We are incredibly excited for what this transition will bring to CAPX and the SAIC community, and we look forward to using Handshake to aid in our mission to connect students and alums with amazing opportunities and to prepare them for a sustaining and fulfilling life after SAIC.
