DIB development

At Capital One, we know our differences make us stronger. That’s why the company offers learning opportunities that challenge our biases and explore topics like race, gender, ability and age. Resources include live workshops, self-paced assessments and modules about driving meaningful change. 

Additionally, many of Capital One’s Business Resource Groups (BRG) provide professional development opportunities built around the groups they serve. Learn more about how BRGs work and the resources they offer. 

Career mobility 

Capital One provides a number of programs to help when you’re ready for a career change. Some of the resources are:

  • Catalyst Rotational Program: A career growth development initiative for customer-facing associates who are ready to explore advancement opportunities.
  • Customer-Facing Associate Mobility (CFAM): A full-time, six-month experience for customer-facing associates that introduces them to professional opportunities outside of their current roles, with the potential for a full-time position at the end of the program.
  • Propel: A hub of assets—career panels, tips, internal recruiting advisers, interview prep and strengths finders—to help associates build new careers.

Additional career development resources

Capital One’s development support helps associates learn beyond the company. The tuition assistance benefit provides a maximum of $5,250 in tuition costs up front rather than through reimbursement. Capital One also partners with RiseSmart, a talent mobility organization, to provide confidential career coaching and webinars for customized learning.
