Intern Spotlight!

Tiffany is a CSU student and this weeks pick for Intern of the Week!  Tiffany discusses her internship at the “Jessie” show below.

My name is Tiffany Nguy and I am 23 years old.  My career goal is to work in the accounting department in the entertainment industry.  I am currently interning at the “Jessie” show.  My favorite part about my internship is that the staff and crew at the production are very nice. They welcomed me with open arms and are always willing to help me.  Another thing that I also like about my internship is that I get a lot of hands on experience in the accounting department.  One thing that I have learned from my internship is that I have to pay attention to detail and numbers.  If one amount is off the whole cost report can be off which will not be good.  The most challenging element of my internship is coming out of my shell.  I am a very shy person and it is hard for me to come out and talk to everyone. I would love to over come that challenge and get to know the staff and crew more.  After completing my internship I feel like I have more knowledge on what the accounting department in the entertainment industry goes through.   It is a lot of numbers to deal with but also a really fun environment to work with.
