I remember a friend of mine back home who used to be an intern for a local TV network. The local TV network produced some local variety shows, gag shows, drama shows and the local news program. At the network's office, she was assigned at the Production Department as Production Assistant or PA. Her main duty was to help the other production staff and bigwigs in the production of the local shows. For example, when there are casting calls, she took care of the lists of those who auditioned and during casting call auditions, she would help out in the short-listing. At a casting call one time, she met unexpectedly some of her classmates who would want to try out for a role.
Her other duties were to write some of the scripts for some of the shows, took care of some of the exchange deals with sponsors for the shows and even escorted some celebrities. During tapings and shootings, she would also join get hold of the idiot boards for the hosts to read. I really think she had so much fun working there as an intern. Too bad it was just for a short time as it was only a requirement for school. I'm sure if she'd apply for a position in that TV network, she'd get a job as many have already known her and has seen her work.
