Capital Group

Global Finance Summer Associate

June - August 2018 • San Antonio, TX

What I liked

Residing in San Antonio was a wonderful opportunity for me to intern for a storied & prestigious investment management firm. I very much enjoyed my summer and specifically appreciate being directly immersed within the accounts payable team. Through my challenging & critical project work I was able to use accounting/finance principles taught in school to implement continuous improvement initiatives.

What I wish was different

I wish they stationed a higher number of interns at their San Antonio office.

Advice

Come in open minded and ready to learn quickly. It will be a busy & challenging summer, but the people are very open and collaborative.

Information Technology Summer Associate

June - August 2018 • Irvine, CA

What I liked

I think all of the intern projects were engaging and interesting with complex twists. I really liked the stress that the company put on the interns to network as part of their summer job as I can tell that is something the company really values. I also liked the campus feel to the work environment.

What I wish was different

I wish we could have picked the group that we worked in or been able to rank our interests.

Advice

Never stop asking questions and setting up coffee chats because everyone at the company is so knowledgeable and truly want to help you succeed in whatever you do.
