I have an on-site soon with capital one for their technology development program (2 year full time). I'm wondering how best to prepare and also what's that program like? Will it give me a good springboard to start my career post graduation?

    Make sure you have a pulse and are comfortable sitting for months without doing anything.

      You are the first person I've heard who likes it. How highly is working there regarded? And what are some cool things your team has done?

      Well... I'm actively trying to get out, but I won't deny that I've appreciated what they gave me and leaving will be quite the band-aid to peel off.

      We are AWS's biggest client and a fortune 500 company, so there's that, but idk if anyone aside from Amazon puts much value in C1 as a tech company.

      My team? Well, I've learned scala, which has been pretty cool and valuable

      It matters 100% if you are a top performer

      Unless your manager is shit because you depend on them for communicating how well you can perform

    I have had tdps on my team not get great rotations since they said it was basically a lottery and they have been somewhat vocal about it.

      Should I study anything for the case interview? Looked over the video they sent and it was super simple math and business jargon lol

      Yeah do a few just so you know what to expect. It’s just business BS imo.

    Also what's the best way to prep for interviews there?

      Leetcode easys -- and do your shit in Java even if they tell you that you can answer the technical questions in any language.

      I think the case study is always the hardest part. I don't have any good advice for it.
