Senior Co-Op at University of Delaware

One student was interested in working independently and applying her degree to the real-world through a hands-on project. She wanted exposure to Account Management, Customer Service, Marketing, and PR & Communications, so CapSource designed a special engagement with one-on-one company mentorship directly from the CEO.

He wanted exposure to Research & Development, Customer Service, Data Management, and Product Design & Development, so CapSource designed a special engagement with one-on-one company mentorship directly from the CEO.
