Supportive team helped me to find a great internship

I signed up for the remote internship program with Capital Placement as I have a very specific window that I am available in the summer for work and I was finding it nearly impossible to find a job in my chosen area (marketing) which would allow me to work exclusively during this period. Luckily, with Capital Placement, you have control as the applicant over the duration of your work as well as your chosen field.

Once I was on the program, the team got started straight away with finding interviews at really interesting small companies and start-ups for me. Even though many of the jobs didn't immediately interest me, the experience of interviewing and talking with prospective employers was still really useful. The team is really supportive and checked in with me throughout the application stage to see how I was getting on with my interviews. As a result of this process, I have secured an internship at a company that I'm really excited to work with.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking for work experience and who also wants some flexibility and control over this process.

Pros
  • Constant contact with the team
  • Builds confidence with interviewing process
  • Successful in securing internship

Great Experience

It was a smooth process and lots of support given throughout. The team will reach out to you to understand your area of interest and is very responsive towards your inquiries. Great job on following up with the student and employer back and forth. On a side note, the intern company is very helpful and supportive throughout my onboarding journey.

Overall, it is great for anyone who is keen to learn, gain experience and save some time without having to go through the complicated application processes for larger companies.

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.

What is your favorite travel memory?

Traveling around South East Asia, one of my favorite memories is of Singapore. It is such a melting pot of cultures and different nationalities, I fell in love with the food, the people, and the vibrant environment. The high-rise buildings are captivating, and it almost feels like a little world on its own. I spent two weeks in Singapore, exploring everything from street food markets to Marina Bay Sands. My trip to Singapore was one of the main reasons we created the Singapore internship program.

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

My co-founder and I decided to start Capital Placement whilst we were still students studying at university. Despite the many failures we encountered, we weren't afraid of failure because we knew we would learn from it, and are still learning today. Starting out as a small team, and moving on to manage a bigger team from various parts of the world continues to be a great learning experience for me. Working with candidates and companies from around the world has also taught me so much about culture, people, and various customs and traditions. This has allowed me to grow tremendously, both personally and professionally.

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

A couple of years ago we had a German intern who applied to our program for an internship in Mumbai, India. Whilst networking in India, he met someone with whom he shared a similar passion, who went on to become his business partner for a company they co-founded. Even after the internship had ended, he decided to remain in India in order to travel and source the product for his business venture. More than 5 years later, the two still run a successful business in Germany and India.

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

Singapore Internship Program. It is a city I really admire for its diversity, well-developed infrastructure, incredible food, and culture. There are some amazing companies that I respect and appreciate, and would love to work with. I'd also love to be able to learn about and understand the working culture in countries like Singapore.

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

For 9 years, we have upheld the same standard of 'customer first'. The most important thing to us has always been, and still is, the candidates. We are focused on their best interests. I'm really proud of the fact that we have been able to support so many candidates in the past 9 years and help them get where they want to be professionally. I am proud that our team has still maintained this culture over the years.

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

I believe the people behind a company make it successful. Relationships are important, and transparency - both within the team and the customers - is essential. Empathy is also a major factor in creating a successful company and work environment - to really understand all the stakeholders involved in the company.

What is your favorite travel memory?

My favorite travel memory is my trip to San Franciso. It was a four-day trip where I explored the city on my own and visit the most iconic places San Franciso is known for. My first stop was the Golden Gate Bridge of course. I recall being soaked in the rain and treating myself to a warm cup of coffee at a coffee shop facing the Golden Gate Bridge. My next stop was the Ghiradelli square and their hot chocolate was the best I have had thus far. Every tourist that visits San Franciso takes a walk down Lombard street; which is a steep, narrow street known for its eight hairpin turns. Fisherman's Wharf is one of the busiest tourist areas in San Francisco and one should not miss out on being treated to its popular clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls at one of the local restaurants. Like any other popular city, San Franciso to has a China town. For those who appreciate art and nature, San Franciso offers many art museums and gardens that you can explore. The Victorian Style houses which are now apartments and the iconic cable cars speak of the history of this city. Don't forget to try hop into local coffee shops in San Francisco if you love to expand your caffeine experiences. I recommend starting from The Buena Vista; known for its signature Irish coffee since 1916.

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

Capital Placement is all about work-life balance. The company culture encourages travel, fitness, and exploring the unknown! I was encouraged to pursue things that I have been wanting to do for myself for many years but I only found the time and confidence to execute them after I started working for Capital Placement.

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

The best story I've heard from return students is that interning abroad has changed his perspective on life as a whole. Being exposed to people from different cultures and living in a new environment has really pushed him to move out of his comfort zone. Interning abroad is well beyond learning transferable skills. It's about developing open-mindedness and experiencing diversity.

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

We offer programs in London, New York, and Singapore. I have already been to Singapore and the United States. Therefore, I would love to explore London as I have never been there. Our London Summer program is a short-term program that allows you to intern for a London-based employer and experience life in London. The program also provides accommodation which makes it hassle-free.

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

What's unique about Capital Placement is its diversity and we are all passionate about traveling and exploring the unknown. We are a global team with a great cultural mix and all of us have lived abroad for work or education or both! This makes us a team that lives by what Capital Placement offers - an international experience.

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

Empathy and transparency. These I believe are two key factors that contribute to being a successful company. Being transparent in our business processes and how we operate as a business establishes trust in our customers, teammates, and all other stakeholders in the business. Having empathy allows you to gain a deeper understanding of what is expected by the other individual. This level of awareness and understanding are needed to work harmoniously and to meet and exceed customer expectations in a business.
