• 11,000 miles of natural gas transmission, gathering and storage pipeline and

Dominion's intern program can be an incredible opportunity for college or college-bound students. The program engages students for paid work sessions that involve projects or assignments that are closely related to the student's area of study.
Work experiences generally are not required for college credit nor required to satisfy degree or graduation requirements. Work sessions are structured, supervised, professional, and relate to the student's area of study. These experiences allow students to sharpen their skills, develop a network of contacts, assess their strengths, and test classroom theories in real world settings.
In addition to working during school semesters or summer breaks, intern opportunities may include working during other school breaks or on a part-time basis while attending school if the Company has opportunities available.
Interns who have a paid position are paid on an hourly basis with the rate being determined by their academic standing (ie. Sophomore, Junior, Senior). Intern pay rates are based on established college starting rates. College starting rate projections are gathered annually from survey sources such as the College Placement Council and Edison Electric Institute. Intern pay rates are calculated as a percentage (between 50 and 75 percent) of the applicable college starting rate for the particular academic discipline.
Students must maintain a GPA of 2.50/4.00 or above and must be currently enrolled and attending a four year university. Several factors and/or activities may be used to identify the best candidates:
• Business Needs of the Company
• Student Academic Performance
• Relevant Experience
• Area of Study
• Interview Results
• Contacts with Students During Recruiting Trips to Colleges or Conferences
