After graduating from undergrad, I struggled for months to find clinical and research positions. CapYear has vouched for my skills and advocated for me to the hiring managers for jobs I wouldn't have been able to find or get on my own. They also offer other support services to help me on my medical school application journey. I'm starting a new job that I got through CapYear on Jan 23rd and I'm so excited to finally get the patient care experience that I've been searching for!

There are no other job recruiting sites that cater towards recent pre-health graduates as well as Capyear does. Immediately after creating a profile and sending out applications, I was reached out to by area recruiters (RT and Luis). It was clear to me that they cared about finding me an enriching and quality gap year experience that fit my needs and interests.
