In the Spotlight: Christina Viscusi

Christina Viscusi, a campus recruiter at Capital One, says the University of Maryland has provided Capital One with extremely bright and talented employees over the years.

Capital One—a bank that offers a broad array of financial products and services—is one of the newest members of the Corporate Partners in Computing (CPIC) program.

Since joining CPIC in 2014, Viscusi says Capital One has been working to actively seek out smart and savvy UMD students to fill the company’s ranks.

Searching for these candidates, the company hosted two tech talks at the Computer Science Instructional Center, connected with talented computer science students during private lobby days, and participated in computer science career fairs.

“As a recruiter, what I enjoy the most about the CPIC program is the personalized approach the program takes with each company,” Viscusi says. “Thanks to the help of CPIC Assistant Director Savannah Renehan and her team, we have been able to get the word out about Capital One’s digital initiative and developer-friendly culture. We are incredibly excited to welcome our largest UMD new hire class into Capital One’s Technology Development Program this July.”
