Gas Operations Intern

June - August 2020 • Cleveland, OH

What I liked

Dominion was super flexible and allowed for an online internship for the summer. They also reimbursed me for any housing costs I incurred prior to them setting an online internship. My manager was awesome and we had almost daily conversations about my project progress. I was able to reach out to different people in the company to talk about different aspects of the company.

What I wish was different

The only thing I wanted to do this summer that I wasn't able to be to travel to Ohio to meet my coworkers and go into the field.

Advice

Don't be afraid to take on work. The experience is what you make it. You can spend all summer learning about one thing or multiple things. Just communicate with your manager and the people around you to figure out something that you really like to do.

Engineering intern

May 2020 • Rock Springs, WY

What I liked

Dominion Energy is an excellent company with great benefits and company culture. I had the opportunity to work on challenging projects where I was directly integrated into their operations team. Pay was outstanding, and the majority of interns that were seniors received full time offers. Highly recommend.

What I wish was different

Being that this was a virtual internship, there were many technical issues and minor inconveniences along the way. I also understand the companies need to social distance and protect their employees.

Advice

Network with as many people as you can. Dominion has departments all over the US and the opportunities are truly endless.

June - August 2020 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

Dominion Energy really embraces their values. It was very impressive to see that every single employee lived those values in their day-to-day work. They also care a lot about intern development.

What I wish was different

This was an online internship, and it was awesome, but I wish I could have been on-site to be able to interact with more people and gain different insights.

Advice

Stay curious and always open to learning new things. If there is something you don't know, ask. There will be people willing to help you understand.

What I liked

I really enjoyed how much freedom, respect, and responsibility they gave me. They treated me as if I were already a full-time employee.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have participated in more of the intern activities. I didn't network as much as I could have.

Network and Learn! This is your opportunity to get to know a company firsthand and understand its culture. There are so many knowledgeable people that are excited to meet you, so don't be afraid to speak and engage in conversation. Also, ask questions if you're interested in something or need clarification. They know you don't know everything and they want you to ask for assistance.
