It's never too early, or too late, to start a conversation about your life as a creative professional.

Career and Professional Experience (CAPX) helps students and alums gain the self-knowledge, experience, skills, and confidence needed to develop unique, creatively satisfying career paths.

CAPX provides one-on-one advising, group workshops, and numerous professional networking opportunities. CAPX Advisors work with students and alums on:

Career Planning
Finding SAIC Internships
Job Search Strategies
Prepare résumés and portfolios
Editing SAIC Compass/LinkedIn Profiles
Interviewing Skills
Grants and Residencies
Self Employment/Entrepreneurship
Applying to graduate schools

CAPX places great value on ensuring that students spend time outside of the classroom gaining experience that propels creative growth. Taking part in an SAIC Internship is also a great way to fulfill the six-credit off-campus study requirement.
