Co-ops & Internships

Co-ops & Internships

Eversource offers students the opportunity to learn about the utility business while gaining hands-on experience in a real work environment. As valued members of our team, co-ops and interns are revered for their fresh outlook, unique problem-solving skills and energetic contributions.

Every co-op and intern is exposed to a variety of projects and tasks to foster career development, personal achievement and success at Eversource. Positions are available in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

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.

Eversource’s Co-op & Internship Program

  • Work assignments that provide both learning and work experience for students interested in Accounting, Energy Efficiency, Engineering, Environmental, Legal, Marketing, Operations, Sales and Procurement
  • Social opportunities at gatherings and training activities that provide networking opportunities to meet other students
  • Opportunities to network with full-time employees, senior management and seasoned professionals in your field of study
  • Most positions are paid, some are for credit only

As an intern or co-op at Eversource, you will receive challenging, meaningful work that will allow you to apply your academic coursework to the real work environment.

To provide knowledge and guidance, all co-ops and interns are assigned a mentor—an experienced employee who can offer coaching, feedback and valuable business insight.

Program Requirements:

  • Academic major must relate to applicable co-op or internship
  • Leadership and problem-solving skills
  • Involvement in extracurricular activities is preferred
  • Work availability of at least 10 to 12 weeks for internships and six months for co-ops
  • Legally eligible to work in the United States

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.
