I was drawn to the AIP program by what I had heard about Capital One, a great culture, interesting problems to solve, and that I would be able to take on a truly meaningful project in the 10 weeks as an intern.
What surprised me most was that I only met awesome people. There truly is a special culture here of collaboration and lifting others up. I never felt too intimidated to ask questions or for help from people, no matter their title at the company.
On the Card Customer Complaints team, I focused on complaints data that related to new business decisions and forming solutions and guidance for future decisions. Capital One continued to put customers first, and I felt like the work I did made an impact to continue to better the customer experience, even during tumultuous times.

I've enjoyed how much I've been able to learn, which has fast-tracked my career development. I wasn't a Finance/ Business major in college, but I absorbed an incredible amount of knowledge of Commercial Credit, Finance, Commercial Real Estate and Financial Modeling.
I worked on an underwriting team that worked to approve and finalize financing for our client in support of an acquisition.
I've been surprised by how much all associates believe and embrace the company mission to 'Change Banking for Good'. Though Commercial Banking differs from the Card and Retail business, associates are always looking for ways to refine internal processes and make work as efficient as possible, all with the goal to better serve our clients.

I believed in our mission to make banking as easy as possible for our customers with easy and simple terms. And I really believed that we were striving to get design in at the door and table with our product and tech partners and that was something that I found really important because design is such a crucial part in designing our customers experience.
My favorite thing about working at Capital One is the people. I work with so many talented designers, product partners and tech partners and it just makes every day, coming to work, so much fun. I feel constantly challenged to be at my best.
When I started here I was put on a project to create visuals for one of our platforms. One day when I was scrolling through our app, I saw my designs, and thought that was just a really cool experience that I did something that was definitely out of my comfort one. Millions of customers can see that, which is pretty cool.

I was drawn to the HRIP because it felt like a safe space to explore a new career opportunity. I had built a strong skill set and had an interest in HR, but I did not have any practical experience in the field. I got to experience a great team and really cool projects while also learning so much about other functional areas of HR from my intern class.
I'm really interested in the ways data can be used to drive internal business decisions, so I've been able to develop skills in data analysis, Excel and presenting. This has allowed me to learn how to take a raw data set and use it to tell an impactful story.
Even as a recent college graduate, I feel like my work and my voice are valued here at Capital One. I love knowing that the work I do creates real value for my team and the associates we serve.

Everyone I've met here has been so willing to answer questions and help in any situation, and no one has made me feel as though they're being competitive. I met some of my best friends during my internship, and being able to rely on them for help both inside and outside of work is something that I think is really unique about Capital One.
Before I joined this internship, public speaking was one of my biggest fears, and being able to practice presentations with my peers, my development advisor and my team was invaluable in developing public speaking skills.
My proudest moment was my presentation where I shared everything I had worked on during my internship with my team, peers, and program leads. Being able to visualize my accomplishments and share them with coworkers and friends, and answer questions about my research made me proud of the work I had done and confident in the fact that I had made lasting contributions to my team.

After a summer of hard work on my internship project, I got to host an external vendor meeting I set up as a result of an insight I developed in my project. I also got to share out these findings to the head of our group, and see the project content go all the way up to our CEO. It was awesome to see the impact of my work in real-life.
How much I would learn from my peers, and how quickly I would be offered amazing development opportunities including presenting to senior clients and ownership of work.
We had trainings in McLean, DC, Orlando, and across various informal learning opportunities at the office. Meeting my fellow interns, and fellow colleagues in Strategy was by far my favorite part of my internship.
