Externship Spotlight- Kayla Savarese, PEPSICO

Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Kayla Savarese is graduating in spring 2019 and she is currently pre-business. Over the winter break, she had an externship at PEPSICO in Los Angeles, CA.

Why did you want to do this externship? I applied for this externship because I wanted to gain new knowledge of the various aspects of Marketing because that is the Eller program I am applying for.

What did you do during this job shadow experience? For my externship, my host and I drove around Los Angeles to check in on the businesses and clients she currently has. I was introduced to the process of an installment of a soda fountain machine as well.

What did you learn as a result of the externship? From this experience, I learned the importance of consistent communication with clients. I also learned that attention to detail is necessary when understanding everything a client needs and wants.
