A day in the life of an intern

Battling autism, giving up is not an option
Magic happens when you retire
The ultimate tribute to retiree’s career
Story from the past
Internship gives new perspective
Prior to three weeks ago, I wasn’t sure what my niche would be as a writer at an energy company. I only knew that I loved to write, I had the desire to venture away from home for the summer, and that the internship was geared toward students studying English, communications, and other similar disciplines.
As I approach my fourth week as an intern, in this short period of time, I have learned that it’s not about finding your specific niche, but about exploring and embracing the journey of finding what keeps you passionate about working.
I am Korynn Burfoot, a rising senior studying English at Norfolk State University. This is my first summer interning with Dominion Energy, and I am thrilled to be spending my summer with the Employee Communications team.
Over the past three weeks, I’ve been fortunate to gain a diverse perspective of the company. I’ve toured a power station, attended multiple professional development workshops, met with executives across the company, and collaborated with other interns from different departments.
Through these various opportunities, I’ve realized that everyone’s journey at Dominion Energy is unique. In this issue of You Magazine, we chose to highlight the journeys of various employees from interns to retirees; as they experience life before, during, and after Dominion Energy.
