Kevin’s Internship Experience
Today’s my last day of internship, but it certainly feels like I’ve just joined the company yesterday. The internship at CapitalBay is my first one ever, and it turned out to be a very different one from what I have expected before joining.
An eye-opening experience
Rather than doing routine jobs, I had the chance to execute various tasks, ranging from web development, to content producing, and to business development, which made every single day a different experience, and a new chance to learn something new that I might have not even heard of.
Having no prior finance background, CapitalBay is certainly the right choice for me to pick up some basic financial knowledge that surrounds the operation of the company. As an intern, I was welcomed with a set of onboarding materials which include a wide range of financial knowledge that allowed me to have much clearer understanding about the relevant financing ecosystem and beyond.
Personally, I enjoyed the learning culture the most, where we had the absolute flexibility to approach anyone in the office to seek for relevant guidance, and they were always more than happy to help out despite having heavy workload. Besides, we were often encourage to attend external events with partners. I am grateful to have taken those exclusive opportunities to expose myself in pitching to potential clients from different industries, while grasping new experience and knowledge relevant to each event.
The one and only “CapitalBay/CapBae Culture”
Throughout my internship period, I worked closely with a few other interns, alongside with the business development manager and web developer. It was not just a fun environment, but at the same time, we all had great team dynamics, teamwork and the motivation to learn and to think out of the box. The friendliness, humbleness and passion from the senior management and even among C-suite have truly formed such an interactive workplace where our ideas and commitment are valued. Having the chance to work with the people at CapitalBay is the part of the experience that I surely treasure the most. Some of us might have ended our internships, but our friendships have just begun.
Of course, it wasn’t all about work. There are also biweekly badminton session, and every lunch time that we will all spend together with a variety of amazing food options. (Btw, free lunch on the first and last day of internship ! )
I am extremely grateful to be part of the CapitalBay team. Although it was a short internship, it had undoubtedly became one of the most memorable experience in my life.
