We’re building a leading information-based technology company. Led by our Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard D. Fairbank, we’re on a mission to hire top talent and help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking.
How to Get Hired
We asked Capital One Financial Corporation for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Capital One is #101 on FORTUNE 500 but we think like a startup and we’re determined to reimagine banking. We’re looking for candidates who show deep intellectual curiosity, have the courage to challenge the status quo and obsess creating intuitive, effortless experiences for our customers.
Our associates thrive in an environment that encourages collaboration and openness, and we’re seeking those who are excited to bring forward their unique perspectives to help solve problems. We believe that differences of backgrounds and experiences add value to our business and that inclusion drives innovation.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show us your passion for problem solving and drive to try new things in a fast-paced, ever changing, tech-forward environment. When associates are learning and innovating, they’re unleashing their potential and delivering transformational experiences for our customers, communities and each other.
Authenticity is key. We want our associates to bring their whole selves to work. There’s more to people than what’s listed on a resume.
Show us an entrepreneurial mindset – we love big thinkers who display curiosity and a sincere desire to grow, learn and be part of a team whose collective efforts are working to reimagine an industry. If they have a positive attitude, show commitment to helping others and are inspired by the role and our mission to infuse ingenuity, simplicity and humanity into banking, they’ll have a strong foundation for success here.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We have digital and technology roles open across the company including positions like software engineers, data scientists, cyber professionals, designers and product managers to help advance our technology journey. We’re also looking for operations and customer advocate associates with our expanding and innovative Capital One Cafes.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We welcome prospective candidates to get to know Capital One through our extensive online presence (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) where they’ll find photos, videos and stories that bring Capital One’s culture and experience to life. We’re active in the technology community and have a strong presence at important events across the country. Our team also appears in person at career events and conferences all over the country to connect directly with candidates.
Candidates who are interested in applying can easily begin the application process online via our Careers site or Campus Careers site, which includes tools to help them find opportunities that best align to their unique skills and experiences.
