Externship Spotlight – Deanna Kristick, Deloitte

Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Deanna Kristick is an Accounting major who is expected to graduate in the spring of 2020.  This winter break she had an externship with Deloitte in San Jose, California.

Please provide a brief description of what you did during your externship:

I first arrived at the office where I met the professional in the lobby. We went in the office and talked for about 30-35 minutes. She showed me an example of her work and gave me a tour around the office. We later had lunch down the street.

Why did you want to do this externship?

I wanted to learn more about Deloitte and what they stand for. I wanted to ask questions about the daily life in and out of the office.

What did you learn as a result of this externship?

I learned many things about the Deloitte professional and how she took a different route to become a CPA. I thought it was beneficial to hear her stories as an accountant.

Anything else you would like to share about your experience?

I had a great time meeting an alumni from the University of Arizona and appreciated her time.
