Virginia State Corporation Commission

Audit Intern

June 2019 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

We were given real intern work, helping on real rate cases along side senior-level staff. Utility regulation is an accounting/finance job field not many think about, but it is highly specialized and interesting to learn about.

What I wish was different

At first, you know nothing so you’re a little useless, the first two weeks is all about reading and understanding what utility regulation is. I just wish the first two weeks interns got to see a little more of the action, since it’s only a 10 week summer internship.

Advice

Ask for work, sometimes staff thinks you have a lot to do so they won’t offer work. There’s a lot to learn if you ask for work. Remember to act professional in the workplace by avoiding being on your phone.

Information Technology Intern

May - August 2018 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

The SCC is a great place to work. Everyone is very nice and happy to have interns working there for the summer. I would definitely do the internship again if given the opportunity.

What I wish was different

It would be nice if there were more events for interns from different departments to get to know each other.

Advice

Ask full time employees questions about their jobs if you are interested in doing that position.
