Handshake for Students

Handshake is an innovative college-to-career platform that’s home to all CAPX-approved for-credit internships; full-time, part-time, and freelance jobs; volunteer or contract positions; and other employment opportunities.

All on-campus jobs at SAIC are posted to Handshake.

Students and alums can also schedule individualized advising appointments with CAPX advisors by clicking the “Appointments” tab. Students and alums can view and register for CAPX workshops or events by browsing the “Events” tab.

Handshake for Employers

Companies, organizations, and studios interested in hiring students for off-campus employment are encouraged to use Handshake, too. Employers create accounts, request to connect with SAIC, and, once reviewed and accepted, post internships or job opportunities to the platform.
