Here’s What One of Our Recent Co-op Students Had to Say:

During my time at Eversource, I was not only able to learn but also to contribute through working on different projects. I was always able to share my thoughts and opinions. It is a great working environment with great people who are always willing to help you learn and achieve more.

During my time at Eversource, I’ve learned a lot of what it takes to work in a utility company. I have met great people and worked on projects with top engineers who’ve reshaped the way I think about the industry in a positive way.

During my time at Eversource, I was not only able to learn but also to contribute through working on different projects on a statewide and internal management level. I was always able to share my thoughts and opinions. It is a great working environment with great people who are always willing to help you learn and achieve more.

I completed three co-op terms at Eversource, gaining experience and exposure to all facets of natural gas operations. This experience translated into a full-time opportunity upon graduation and I have assumed the role of a Project Engineer in Gas Engineering ever since. Both Eversource and the gas industry are experiencing rapid growth, providing unbelievable opportunities for incoming employees.
