There were many opportunities to increase my knowledge and gain a better understanding of different areas of the company. Eversource encouraged me to move into positions that were outside of my comfort zone. I was able to work in Customer Service, Customer Operations and Training. I held positions as a representative, team leader, supervisor and now manager. Having this opportunity provided me with a level of knowledge that surpassed anything I could have hoped for.Jennifer Manager, Business Services
