Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Valeria Leon is graduating in 2019 and is currently a pre-business student. Over winter break, she had an externship at Villa Campana Rehabilitation Hospital in Tucson, AZ. 

Why did you want to do this externship? I was looking to expand my knowledge of the business world, discover my interests, and explore what is required for certain careers to achieve success within a company.

What did you do during this job shadow experience? During the externship I was able to talk to several professionals of different positions at the company, also I was able to take part in a daily task that the accounts payable manager does and was taught how to properly perform it.

What did you learn as a result of the externship? At the end of this experience I learned that success is not easy and that it requires a lot of work and patience. I also was able to gain some insight on the working professionals at Villa Campana and their roles within the company.
