Employee Quotes

Lauren,
Associate Engineer

Meet Lauren

Lauren's father was an electrician and her love of math led her to engineering.

“Learning the technology behind what my dad did was very intriguing to me. I've also learned something new almost every day while working at Eversource,” Lauren said. Her advice to others interested in pursuing a career in the field is to explore and ask questions. “Engineering is such a vast field with so many opportunities and focuses. Through networking, you can understand those differences a lot better,” she said.

Haseeb, Associate
Engineer

Meet Haseeb

“When I was young, I used to grab anything I could get my hands on, take it apart, and then put it back together,” he said. “Seeing the marvels of engineering inspired me to pursue electrical engineering so I could one day be the person behind the design. Remember to work hard at what you love and don't give up. Learning doesn't always come easy, but it does pay off.”
