Business Analyst

June - August 2018 • McLean, VA

What I liked

I loved the people I worked with. All of them were kind and helpful. I learned a lot throughout the summer and had a lot of fun doing so.

What I wish was different

The new headquarters building had opened a bit earlier.

Advice

If you have the opportunity, take it. I had one of my most fun summers, learned a ton, made more money that I felt I had business making, and gained confidence to adapt to any situation. I can’t speak highly enough of my time at Capital One.

Software Engineer Intern

June - August 2018 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

Capital One had a great company culture that placed software engineering at the core of its business, as opposed to a support component. The campus was beautiful and I had a chance to work in the Center for Machine Learning contributing meaningful work and gain experience with a wide variety of technologies.

What I wish was different

My only complaint was that since the Capital One office is in the Richmond suburbs, you have to have a car to get around. If not, you have to find someone to car pool with the whole summer. It would have been nice if some kind of shuttle service had been provided.

Advice

Capital One may not sound like a tech company, but the CEO clearly sees technology as the future of the company. Thus, there is very little of the bureaucracy in software development that is found at most other banks.

May - August 2018 • St. Cloud, MN

What I liked

I loved the experience I gained and the trust the company put in my skills. I tried and learned so many new things in the summer I was with Capital One. I learned more that just what I was interested in too, so much room for skill building

What I wish was different

Only that I wish it was longer, but a summer is only as long as the last!

Advice

Always try new things!!
