With the world beyond PHS only a year a way, senior Zach Voight set up an Academy Experience to help him finetune his career choice.

Zach's Academy Experience is based at Civista Bank. He is exploring different aspects of banking and loans during his site visits with the financial professionals at the bank.


"I want to get an in depth look at what my life could look like in the future," Zach says. "I am not sure what part of business I want to go into and I think being able to interact with the real-life business world will be able to help me make important decisions that will shape the way the rest of my life looks.

"I hope to find a little clarity as to what kind of jobs I will be doing if I enter the business field. I would want to learn skills and gain knowledge that will help me when pursuing a career in business."

At Civista, Zach has been learning about the job responsibilities and tasks of various branches of the financial institution.

From his experiences with the professionals in the loan department, Zach shared that last week he spent time with the manager of loan reviews.

"I shadowed what she was doing as she reviewed loan files," he says. "As part of the process, she checked over credit reviews from the analysis department. She also went into the management system and updated other reviews from past years.

"As a loan review manager, one has to be able to operate different programs and menus to find different 
information that needs to be put into the review presentations.

"I also learned how the process of a loan review works. It has to go through multiple steps so people can check the information for accuracy and address errors."
