Student Spotlight: Diana Soto, Sunquest

Eller PDC Student Stories

sunquestDiana is working this summer at Sunquest Information Systems as a marketing intern in Tucson, AZ.

Tell us a little bit about how you landed the internship:  I received one of those “Eller Marketing Job Blast Tuesday” emails and saw the description for the Marketing Intern position at Sunquest Information Systems and really liked it. I applied online, did a test, got a 10-minute phone interview and then an hour-long in person interview. Two or three days after my final interview I received an email saying that I was hired. Eller PDC has a lot of good tips to follow in order to land an internship.

What do you like and dislike about your internship and the industry you work in?

I am really liking the whole internship. I am always busy, which is something that I love and it is a paid internship, which is really nice! The best part is that I am learning a LOT of new things and meeting a lot of people. I am working directly with the Marketing Director and the
Marketing Manager, which provides great learning and networking opportunities.

What advice do you have for other interns?

  • Learn how to follow instructions VERY carefully
  • Meet deadlines
  • Always have a positive attitude
  • Be open for new projects
