    I worked at Black Hills Power as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an engineering student on an eight month co-op, I was treated as an equal to the engineering staff. It was a great way to get an idea of what working for a utility would be like after graduation. The tasks assigned were not ‘busy-work’, but real issues that needed engineering assistance to be remedy the problem.

    Cons

    Projects may seem limited, but you are working with an 8-month window as a co-op student, so that is expected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Black Hills Power (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.
