Intern of the Week: Jenica Mnich

Jenica is a San Diego State graduate and was chosen as the CSU Entertainment Industry Initiative Intern of the week!  Jenica discusses her internship at CBS below.

My name is Jenica Mnich and I am 22-year-old recent college graduate from San Diego State University. My career goals persist of me aspiring to become a successful film producer and actress. Ideally I would love to write, direct, produce and act in my own sitcom…I blame my fantasy “can do” attitude on my mom!  I am currently interning at CBS in production with the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. My favorite part of interning with The Bold and The Beautiful is that since it is such a small show, I am able to work closely with all departments such as art, wardrobe, production, lighting and even casting.
One aspect I have learned while interning at the B&B is the importance of organization.  Everyone works together as a team to get the show out on due date; therefore the key to this fast paced madness is awesome organization skills.
The most challenging element of my internship is making sure I am fast and efficient. No one likes to wait for slow pokes.
After completing my internship I feel have more knowledge about the entertainment industry and the many long hours it goes into producing a single show. It is as though every show is a masterpiece of its own kind.
