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 a Fortune 200 company but we think like a startup and we’re determined to reimagine banking. We want candidates who show deep intellectual curiosity, have the courage to challenge the status quo and who obsess about the customer experience.
Our people thrive in an environment that embraces collaboration and openness. So, we seek those who are excited to come to the table and share their unique point of view shaped by their backgrounds and experiences. We believe that our differences add value to our business and that collaboration and respect for all people drives innovation.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show us your passion for growth and a drive to try new things in a fast-paced, ever changing, tech-forward environment. Because when associates are challenged and expanding, 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. An individual’s personality should come through in their work and that’s exactly what we want to see.
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, are inspired by the role and our mission to infuse ingenuity, simplicity and humanity into banking, that’s a dream come true.
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, digital product designers and digital product managers to help advance our technology journey. We’re also looking for operations and call center associates with our expanding 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 where they’ll find photos, videos and information that brings Capital One’s culture and experience to life. 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 which includes tools to help them find opportunities that best align to their unique skills and experiences.
