(Adam ) You have the opportunity as a data analyst
to work on projects... a lot of times they can be worth
tens to hundreds of millions of dollars.
(Janeth) My first year, I was already meeting with
Executive Vice Presidents talking about things that
we’re doing for the network.
(Preetha) The business analysts don’t come in and
just say, “Hey, I want this done.” They’d be like,
“Hey, we’re looking to do this, so what do you think
you can do with this data?”
(Adam) What you will do a a data analyst is you
will extract data from various systems, you’ll manipulate
the data. From there you may create reports or
analyze the data and in the end, it’s going to allow
us to make business decisions that will impact
Capital One and impact its customers directly.
(Janeth) My very first project was very challenging
too, because it was data that nobody had used before
I had to go and dig and learn. And it was like from the
beginning... I was like, this is gonna be a fun ride!
From the moment I applied, to the moment I accepted
my offer and I came to Richmond to live and all of that,
it was amazing.
(Preetha)I gave my test, I got my interview call in a
week. I got my offer two days right after my interview
so I was like wow!
(Adam ) Regardless if you’re a finance major, if
you’re an engineer, if you studied information systems
math, statistics, you can come to Capital One and we’ll
provide the training, provide the mentorship.
and provide the tools that you need to be successful.
(Janeth) It’s not just about the job. The support I got was
about who I was as a person and what I needed from
a personal level.
(Chet) There is a notion of work-life balance that I think
Capital One brought to the table.
(Jennifer) Particularly, one thing I like is we can work from home.
(Janeth) My manager helped me protect my own time.
She was like, “Hey, I saw you worked on the weekend,
let’s see how I can help you.” Working late hours,
working weekends, is not expected.
(Chet) If you’re looking for a company where you can come
in and add value right away, not get lost in the shuffle, then
you should definitely come to Capital One.
(Adam) From the very beginning, we allow folks the
opportunity to provide input and we actually encourage
them to. Especially folks that are coming
in new from other cultures.
(Preetha) I had heard a lot about the culture, but I
didn’t believe it as much until I actually saw it.
(Janeth) People care about you, from the work
perspective and from the personal level. It’s like you
really feel people care.
(Preetha) For the first time, it’s not like cut-throat
competition all the time. People are really helpful.
(Janeth) You can come to a place where you love
what you do and do what you love.
