Fairfax, Virginia – February 7, 2021 – Capital Techies, a Fairfax-based provider of cloud, IT, voice, and security solutions, is pleased to announce its rapid growth of the summer internship program. Now in its second year, the program provides an opportunity for interns to gain experience by working alongside our skilled team of IT experts while having the opportunity to earn college credit for their degrees.
In the summer of 2020, Capital Techies founded the internship program with just one excited intern. Within a year, the program more than tripled in size, with representation spanning a wide scope of career paths. Mentors at Capital Techies guide the next generation of leaders in the IT field to help them gain experience while working on their degrees.
“I wanted to start the internship program because I’ve been at companies that truly value interns. I think it is something that gives both ways. We are proud of the fact that we don’t use our interns to just be the company’s ‘coffee-getters’. As a company, we can give young adults the opportunity to learn how to be professional, how to act in the workplace, and how to network,” Christina Gulick, Director of Finance states. “It also gives back to us as a company and as managers. Interns come in with fresh eyes, eagerness, and enthusiasm that often times has more of an impact on us than we anticipated.”
With an intern in almost every department, management has been able to increase productivity. The interns take on day-to-day tasks that are instrumental to a broad scope of initiatives, giving full-time employees more availability to contribute to leadership roles and projects. George Mason student and Project Management Intern Matilde Burrell says, “I’ve led project meetings and presented in front of company executives, which is something I never thought I would be able to do before starting here. I am growing as a professional and I am becoming more confident in my skills each day.”
Guillermo Corporan, CEO of Capital Techies comments, “We love the enthusiasm and fresh perspective our interns bring to the workplace. It allows us to develop our permanent employees with an opportunity to gain valuable management experience.”
