CDK Global / Eng Interny
Sep 19 17 Comments

Anyone willing to refer to Capital One, Ebay, or Cisco? Rising Junior studying Computer Science. Previous SWE Intern at CDK. Involved heavily outside of the classroom, organized the worlds first hackthon in the Space Needle last year, and have attended 6+ as a participant!

Have also done a good amount of LC/CTCI problems. Also currently reading EPI.

Can provide more info/background on request!

Thank you :)

    In all seriousness, why Capital One? I mean, why any of these 3, but in particular why Capital One?

      Not my first choice but I figure that I may as well try and get in their interview loop

    Haha I like the pattern going on here. Anyways, I just felt like the companies I’ve listed have a good rep for engineering and overall culture and work experience. C1 because I’ve been looking into fintech and it seems like they’ve been trying to present themselves as a techish company. eBay seems like they have a robust platform to work on same with Cisco

      Fair point. My idea of fintech is a little more loose and extends to banks like C1, JPM, etc. But yeah I suppose those aren’t quite like the companies you listed which are much more tech focused than C1, etc

      Fintech at a bank a joke. Want to maintain legacy systems? Want to be In a culture where the "fin" comes before the "tech"? Go for it I guess.

      Not the ideal scenario but can’t hurt for just an internship 😅

      To each their own I guess. Just hoping that you already applied to the big companies and that C1 at least is a backup

      Yeah I have referrals to most of FAANG and MSFT but those companies have pretty difficult Leetcode/algo questions compared to banks so C1, etc is more so a safety

    Capital one is trash. Join FANG

      I mean FANG > C1 but doesn’t hurt to cast a wider net right?

    C1 is good for fresh graduates anything between mid-lvl to sr manager are questionable
