My experience with Capital Placement was very smooth and easy going, what I valued the most was the effort the team put in to find me an internship that is tailored to my preferences and interest. Usually using such a service you would expect to yield results, but not the results that you would get if you ventured out on your own. However, with Capital Placement I was able to get in-touch with companies that would normally be out of my scope and reach. I would recommend this service because the team does not consider this a business, you are not just another paying customer, the team takes the time to understand the type of workplace that suits you and strives to ensure that you find the most suitable internship.

10 out 10. Since my initial call everything has been fast, very easy and effective. I got matched with a startup in the legal-tech sector that has everything I was looking for. One of my concerns when considering a remote internship was how much will I actually learn since I wasn't going be there physically interacting with my new colleagues. But the whole remote thing hasn't been a problem at all, my colleagues are amazing and in these few weeks I have learned so much.This great match was definitely posible because the Capital Placement team took time in that initial interview to get to know my background, what I was looking for in an internship and my long term goals. Overall my whole experience has been very pleasant and the Capital Placement team has always been there to make sure that doesn't change.

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing. The whole process was very efficient.

Overall this remote internship experience has equipped me with useful skills. While this internship was not in my primary area of interest, I have come to develop a liking towards this field. A big shoutout to Vinay for explaining things to me frankly. The whole team at Capital Placement genuinely cares and are always ready to help when needed. I am glad I took this opportunity to further my professional skills and I'm looking forward to experiencing the wide range of possibilities this remote internship has made available for me.

What would you improve about this program?
The process was really smooth and there was good communication between me and the staff so I think it was as good as it could be.

The team at Capital Placement are fabulous. Always quick to respond to my emails, their customer service is outstanding. Not only do they find the right fit for you, but they are honest with you if you need to improve your skills in areas to match the industry so that you can intern and grow successfully. From editing documents to researching competitor financials, I am always kept busy and in the loop of activities "on the ground". Interning remotely has been amazing & fun, I would recommend that anyone wants to add to their experience take part!

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing. I have no complaints. You guys gave me the perfect company and always answer all questions I have.

Julia Hurtado

Job Title
Business Associate
Having spent an entire summer dedicated to traveling abroad, Julia now focuses on helping other students experience life outside their home country. As a native Texan now working in London, Julia enjoys sharing advice on interning abroad, sipping tea (with 2 sugars, 1 milk please) and reading in her spare time.

What is your favorite travel memory?

It has to be when I went to Rome. I'm a big history person and I love carbs, so Rome was my place! I got to explore the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Trevi fountain and literally all the piazzas and went to Vatican city. Also, I got to eat my heart out in pasta, pizza, and gelato. It was a surreal experience to see and experience such historical things for myself. I think about Rome a lot still and I have plans to return.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I have become more confident in my ability to do great work and pitch forward any ideas that I think would help us better improve. Additionally, I've become more responsible, timely, professional, and just learn to accept failure when it happens and move forward. Also, I learned to not shy away from hearing what I needed to improve on and use that information to really grow within my field. All things that I feel helped me grow from being a shy and timid graduate to someone open to improving herself and being confident along the way.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

One of our interns got the opportunity to fly out and represent her host company in Milan, all expenses paid. While she was there, she met other professionals in the fashion industry like her and they connected and it turns out they had an office in her city back in the US. She then was able to use that network connection to secure some designs for her final year project.

Not only did she get to fly to out to Milan, but she also met important people in her field who helped her later on both in her career and while she was studying at University. Talk about connections!!

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would do our 6-month graduate internship in London. I really like this program because it is a sustainable internship with it being a paid internship. It also fully immerses you into the London work culture and lifestyle. You truly get a full understanding of what it means to be a part of the company and are treated as a full-time staff member as well.

I think the length of it, the fact that it’s paid and that you are doing the same work as graduates are doing really gives you an advantage over your peers and a great internship experience.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

What I love about my company is that it focuses on sustainable internship experiences and a one-to-one experience for our interns. It is not a secret that studying or interning abroad is very pricey, and because of that, it often limits people from it. Capital Placement is working on getting paid internships for our interns participating in our graduates' programs for 6-months. This allows our interns to get work experience, make some money and survive in some of the world's most expensive cities.

By focusing on sustainable internships, we can open the doors and opportunities for so many inspiring students and graduates who may not have had the chance. I'm was especially proud of our team when we decide to introduce a scholarship to further help students intern abroad. It was great to be a part of a team that wanted to help others.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I think the biggest factor is, to be honest. This factor will determine the type of company you are and the environment you create for yourself and your employees. Additionally, it will also help a company because their customers know they are honest and will, in turn, allow customers to comfortably trust and respect your mission. In the end, being honest will help a company stay successful in the long-term.
