Capital Placement Review

I have recently worked with capital placement to find a placement as part of my placement year at university.Capital Placement allowed me to find the perfect placement which was extremely flexible and fit in around my other plans and commitments. Kit,Keerthika and the rest of the team were great in terms of responsivness and also were very understanding when i needed to change my placement demands mid way through the placement search.I would highly recommend working with them to help find a placement and improve your CV for the future!

Best remote internship!

Capital Placement is the perfect internship program you will find! Their team will help you find the perfect match for you and will give you advices to improve your CV. I did the process with Keerthika and could not imagine a better guide for this process. She understood what I was looking for and gave lots of options until I found the perfect one for me: I will be doing an internship at a marketing agency in London! Also, I was looking to start this internship on November and they got in on time. Thanks for your help!

My overall experience was great!

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.

Everything has been fast, very easy and effective.

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.

Keerthika Kanagarathnam

Job Title
Global Partnership Executive
An experienced individual with 2 years of working experience in customer relations who goes above and beyond to exceed customer expectations. Always up for new challenges and adventures.

What is your favorite travel memory?

My favourite memory is meeting new people and learning about their culture. Each individual is different and it is fascinating to learn about new cultures and their local language. Also trying local food, you may like to or you may not but tasting food is always has been and will be my favourite travel memory.

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

I learnt about all the industries as we work with candidates from different industries its a must to know about each industry. I wouldn't have been able to learn about all these industries if I worked for any other company. I have improved my email comms as well. Also, working with people from all over the world is helping me become a culturally intelligent person.

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

They have had the best time at the company that they interned with and the employer helped them improve their current skills and acquire new skills. I am relatively new to the company so I am yet to hear the best story yet. All this time I have only heard good things from the candidates who return to our program and them returning itself proves that they have had the best internship.

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

Business Development. My current role is closely related to business development so I believe doing an internship in business development will help me improve my skills and learn about new things from a different company which could help me grow in my current role and also grow Capital Placement. I also like marketing as it's an interesting field to get into.

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

We are an international team working remotely. The team members are from the UK, South Africa, India and Sri Lanka. Despite the time difference and being miles apart we have managed to create a unique bond among colleagues which makes the team stronger. Also, our founders have been interns and know the struggle of an intern so they always put the candidates no matter what the cost is for the company. I am immensely proud of all that they have achieved in these 9 years and I am sure they will grow tremendously in the future.

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

Most of the companies only focus on the customers and fail to think about their employees. I believe it's equally important to treat your employees as you would treat your customers. Word of mouth is a marketing tool that is not being recognised as much. A happy employee will only spread the good news about the company and will encourage their family and friends to join the firm as a customer or an employee.
