At CapTech, interns work in tandem with other interns for twelve weeks and experience the full lifecycle of a typical IT consulting project. You'll be working to help solve some of CapTech's internal projects, including all aspects of the analysis, design, development, and deployment of an internal tool to help benefit CapTech. The program is designed to help interns fully experience the many roles consultants play in everyday projects.
In addition to the project work, each intern is paired with a senior CapTech consultant who serves as their evaluator throughout the summer. The evaluator will work with the intern to document their goals at the beginning of the internship and track them through to the final evaluation at the end. Interns will also sit through a weekly "lunch and learn" with a CapTech senior partner, getting the opportunity to learn and hear the experiences of the most senior consultants. CapTech also sponsors interns to partake in Richmond's local "YRichmond" Intern program, giving them exposure to workshops and fun events around the area. At the end of the internship, the intern teams get the opportunity to present their project to the company.
By the end of the internship, CapTech interns walk away fully understanding the expectations and life of an IT consultant, as well as understanding what makes CapTech so special.
Ideal candidates are students who have just completed their junior year and have a major in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering, Business Information Technology, or a related field.

They are looking for students who want to experience the full lifecycle of a consulting engagement and are willing to be flexible and adaptable in taking on multiple roles, being self-sufficient, and wanting to tackle challenging problems.
