It has been pretty great so far, I have recently started an internship with London based digital marketing agency! The team were very accommodating and truly made an effort to answer all my question within a few minutes sometimes, as well as, provide the best opportunities in the market- which I know is difficult given the current climate.

I also find their ease in contact very helpful. Overall, it is something I would not hesitate to recommend other international students to consider when looking for a job or internship abroad.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
There are not many options available at the moment so definitely take whatever experience you can.

I just started a 12 weeks internship with a private equity firm in London. The team at CP have been very efficient and could not have tried harder. Right from my first interaction, they have been very professional, insightful and worked with me to find the best firm and internship based on my goals.

The internship has already off to a great start, the HR were really organised and I was impressed by how friendly everyone was and despite working remotely, I felt very welcome and part of the team.

I can't recommend this program enough and the team at CP. To explain how efficient and helpful they have been, they managed to have an internship confirmed for me just over a week from my application being submitted.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Things are difficult due to COVID, plan your remote internships well in advance and make sure to stay organized.

Capital Placement is super efficient in finding me an internship. I worked with Vinay and he's fantastic, always getting in touch with prompt updates! I first contacted them when things were normal, and was given several choices of internships I'd be interested in. Things took a turn due to the COVID-19 outbreaks, but despite that, Capital Placement was still able to work through it and find me a great remote placement. I really appreciate how swift and adaptable they are with the circumstances.

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing. It has been great experience and I'd recommend Capital Placement to anyone!

I recently enrolled on the program and the team at Capital Placement has done a great job with finding a paid internship within a few days of applying. So far, the internship has been great and I think it will add a lot of value to my professional development, especially during these times because it is very difficult to get any sort of internship now.

The staff were helpful throughout the process and very knowledgeable on remote internships, which gave me a lot of confidence. There is nothing I can think of that they could have done differently- highly recommend this program to anyone thinking of applying.

What would you improve about this program?
Capital Placement did a great job with the program, I can't see any way to improve!

One of my highlights during the time in London was the colleagues I was working with and I am still so thankful that CP found an internship with the company for me. It was a crazy, very busy, a little bit chaotic, fun loving and lovely work place. All my colleagues were very welcoming from the very first second was such a great experience for me. Even the founders of the firm were so open made the experience really great. During 3 month there was not one minute that I was bored. The company structure in London is very different from what I am used to back home but I realised very quickly that this is the norm in a fast growing startup in London, when I compared it with the experience of other interns on the program.

The company had a very flat hierarchy, which I was really happy about, they prioritised having a great work environment, just as much as they did with getting work done. My supervisor supported me a lot when I struggled with certain tasks, which was reassuring because I was worried about asking for help initially.

I also managed to travel around during the weekends and see more of the country then I first planned. All of this made a great experience and I am so glad I did this internship.

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.
