Employers

Career and Professional Experience (CAPX) connects SAIC students and alums with organizations, studios, and companies in Chicago, throughout the U.S., and around the world. 

SAIC students and alums are talented artists, innovators, designers, writers, and scholars who have advanced interdisciplinary training and deliver fresh perspectives to the workplace. CAPX will help you explore the ways to connect with them. 

CAPX works closely with employers to provide professional opportunities for students and alums who have studied and worked at the forefront of creative industries. Over the years we’ve partnered with more than 2,000 local, national, and international employers and internship providers. We invite you to join this distinguished network.
