Hello Captains! Last Thursday we were lucky to have one of the largest energy providers in the world. Dominion Power presented at Pizza My Mind. Dominion Power values its company on safety, ethics, excellence, and teamwork. They are located in 47 different locations throughout the country with their headquarters located in Richmond, Virginia. Forbes has ranked them as one of the best places to work offering the strongest opportunities for employees.
So, what exactly does Dominion Power do? The company is built on public service, innovation, and community involvement. In addition to their core energy production, transportation and storage businesses, they invest in communities where we live and work. They also practice responsible environmental stewardship wherever they are located.
Towards the end of the presentation, the representatives from Dominion shared information about internship opportunities for 77 different majors including Business, Info-Tech, Chem, and Engineering. There are 8 states that they provide internships in and they pay their interns up to 22 dollars an hour. 75% of interns get hired to work for Dominion. That is 190 interns per year!
