With the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Capital Placement is working diligently to help each of our participants and staff members currently on our programs stay safe, secure and as comfortable as possible in each of the cities we operate in. We take the health and safety of all of our customers extremely seriously and, over the past few days, our primary focus has been on providing guidance and support to the members of the Capital Placement community. We understand the information we are providing is important for them to notify friends and family back home that are concerned about their wellbeing.
As the situation continues to evolve, we’ll do our best to provide updates in a timely fashion. Here is how we’re handling the pandemic right now regarding our community.
Current CP Participants
Capital Placement’s programs are still operating, however, given the current state of travel and immigration and the latest safety and security advisories, we have halted the start of all new programs for 60 days. We have communicated the following options to give our active participants the flexibility to find a situation in which they feel most comfortable.
Option A: All active interns in London and Singapore have the option to remain in the city they are currently in and extend their stay through April. Our local teams will continue to be available for support on the ground.
Option B: If a participant would like to leave their program, Capital Placement will support them in any way possible.
Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure that we have contingency plans in place to be ahead of possible situations that may arise. Please note that the approach for each program will vary and may change over time as new information comes in, but every decision will be made under very careful guidance and consideration.
Future committed Participants
For participants who have committed to a Capital Placement internship program that is planned to start on or after May 25, 2020, we are monitoring the situation closely and will be in communication with you directly about changes with the status of your program. In the event that we need to postpone or change your program, we will move you towards a future Capital Placement program so you can still look forward to interning with us. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
We are committed to delivering great work and travel experiences to interns both on our current programs and future ones as well! If you’re interested in a Capital Placement internship program, we welcome you to schedule a call and commit to one of our programs set to start August 2020 and onward. Our team is available to chat through your options and answer questions you may have. Please keep in mind that while we are unable to tell you how far into the future you should commit to an itinerary, we can assure you that if circumstances change and your program is changed or postponed due to coronavirus, we will allow you to join a program even further out.
While our heart breaks for all of the communities around the world who are affected by this pandemic, we hope that everyone is taking the additional measures to stay healthy at this time and also doing what’s best for their own local community to keep the situation from getting worse.
Capital Placement is confident that amidst these conditions that we can continue to provide great internship and travel experiences while staying on top of the situation until things return to normal. We will be updating this page to communicate any major changes that happen with our company or community.
