What I liked
My internship experience at Capital One was incredible. Throughout the summer, executives from all over the company held speaker sessions to speak with the 25 interns in the commercial banking program. Additionally, the CEO, Rich Fairbank, spoke to the entirety of Capital One's interns for two hours at their headquarters in person. These speaker series highlighted Capital One's dedication t to their interns as well as the company's inviting culture. Throughout the summer, I was encouraged to speak to as many people in the firm as possible, and employees were always willing to set a time to have a coffee chat and talk about their work. The leadership is great and I was always given work that was interesting and furthered my understanding of the business.
