About Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)

From I-40 and every highway in between, if you’ve driven across the region, you’ve probably seen the TVA dams that make clean energy and help maintain lakes and rivers. That’s part of what we do. Every day 10,000 TVA team members across hundreds of roles provide clean, reliable and affordable electricity, create prosperous communities through economic development and job creation, and uphold an environmental stewardship program that has created some of the most beautiful and productive waterways in the United States.

At our core: TVA provides electricity for 153 local power companies serving 10 million people (that’s a lot!) in Tennessee and all across our seven-state region. TVA also provides electricity directly to 57 large industrial customers and federal installations, all while providing flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system, and assisting local power companies and regional governments with economic development efforts.


Portfolio Risk Management Intern

May 2023 Huntsville, AL
“Everyone in the company has demonstrated a vested interest in ensuring that I feel valued. Even people outside of my team have been sincerely glad to learn more about me as a person, share their experiences, and point me in the right directions. The culture is legitimate in the way it is oriented around the people internally and those it serves externally. ”

Corporate Accounting Intern

May 2023 Chattanooga, TN
“I liked how many opportunities there were for interns to get involved, learn more about TVA, and talk to managers and executives in a small setting. There are at least 3 virtual events per week that allow interns to learn about the different organizations within TVA and ask questions. I also love how kind and willing everyone is to help out and answer any questions! TVA truly wants their interns to succeed! Since my position is remote, I have enjoyed the flexibility that comes with that.”
