SAIC Compass is an online network that connects students and alums with hundreds of internship and job opportunities and potential employers. It is a three-sided platform: students and alums, employers, and CAPX. All registered SAIC students have been uploaded into SAIC Compass and can log in using their SAIC usernames and passwords, or by clicking on the SAIC Compass button. All alums can register for an account through the Students/Alumni tab under New Users. All faculty and staff can also register for an account through the Students/Alumni tab by choosing Faculty/Staff in the "I am a/an" drop-down menu.

How it Works

SAIC Compass is home to for-credit or no-credit internships; full-time, part-time, seasonal, or freelance jobs; volunteer positions; and call-to-enter opportunities. It also provides students and alums with direct access to Career and Professional Experience (CAPX) advising appointments, workshops, and events. Each employer, internship, and job posted to SAIC Compass has been approved by CAPX and posted directly to an SAIC-exclusive network.

Students and alums have the opportunity to create their own personalized profiles that link to their résumés and portfolios or websites. Then, they have the option to make their profiles visible to employers.

Students and alums can also schedule one-on-one advising appointments with CAPX Advisors by visiting the “Career Experts” tab in Compass. Students and alums can view and register for CAPX workshops or events by using the “My Events” tab.


Interested in hiring our students or alums? Go to For Employers

Employers use SAIC Compass to fill several different types of positions including internship, full-time, part-time, and freelance. Employers create accounts, request to connect with SAIC, and, once reviewed and accepted, post internships or job opportunities to SAIC Compass. Employers also have the ability to search and “favorite” students and alums who have made their profiles visible.
