    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Black Hills Corporation (Rapid City, SD) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I did not know a bunch about the company before going into the interview. I had only heard about them through a friend and was very excited when they even gave me the chance for an interview. Knowing more about the company I think would have helped. Also it was very nice to get a call back from them when they informed me that I did not receive the internship. I would much rather like a call than a letter.
