Alumni

For more than 150 years, SAIC alumni have been working and creating in a variety of industries, organizations, companies, and practices. Their wide-ranging roles expand on the school’s core value that meaning and making are inseparable. 

How CAPX helps SAIC alums

SAIC alums have access to CAPX resources for life! Alums have access to the same resources and services that CAPX offers current students. Career and Professional Experience (CAPX) offers valuable career advising and a wide range of programs and events. Alums can schedule career advising appointments, register for events, and apply for jobs on Handshake. In addition to meeting with a career advisor, the Handshake resource page contains valuable career advice and is accessible 24/7. Go to Career Resources for more information. 

If you are an alum who graduated prior to 2013 and wish to access Handshake, please email handshake-support@saic.edu. Include your graduation year, your name while at SAIC, and your ID number if available in your email request for access.

Alums are invited to share their experiences, give advice, and offer internships and jobs to SAIC students and alums.
