Hired full-time: Spring 2018

“My internship at ISO New England inspired me to pursue a career in the power systems industry. I gained valuable insight into the industry through hands-on projects, and my supervisors and senior management supported and encouraged me each step of the way. When I was employed full-time after graduation, the learning opportunities didn’t stop –the ISO provides ongoing training, professional development programs, and daily challenges that continue to strengthen my skills as an engineer.”

Interned: Summer 2014 – Spring 2015
Hired full-time: Summer 2015

“For me, interning with ISO New England opened a door into the energy industry, expanding my view well beyond what I had encountered in the classroom. In my role with the Power System Model Management Department, I had the chance to dive head-first into the New England power grid, understand its complexities, and get to know the very people who tirelessly work behind the scene to make it run smoothly. Upon graduation, being offered a full-time position in the Transmission Planning Department was a fantastic opportunity to start my career and help ensure a bright future for all residents of New England.”

“The unique, rewarding internship program at ISO New England changed my perspective on the typical accounting career path. I discovered that the ISO wasn’t just a place for talented engineers but a place welcome to a wide scope of different skills and career interests, and I found myself at home in such a receptive environment. Shortly after my internship, I began my career at ISO New England and the opportunities to learn and collaborate with bright-minded people have been endless ever since.”

 
 

Former intern, current employeeKayleigh

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Mechanical Engineering
Interned: Summer 2014 – Spring 2016
Hired: Summer 2016

“I began at the ISO as an intern in Operational Performance Training and Integration, but the skills I acquired there weren’t restricted to just that department. Rather, the passion I developed for system operations led me to my first role as a full-time employee in Long-Term Outage Coordination, and then to my current position in Short-Term Outage Coordination. What you learn at the ISO is transferrable to so many different avenues in the power industry, and I’m grateful I’ve gained that kind of professional flexibility throughout my time here.”

“It’s mind-boggling how much work goes on behind the scenes to provide something as intrinsically valuable as reliable, economical electricity. As an intern and now employee at ISO New England, I have the opportunity to address the real challenges affecting the electric power industry and provide meaningful solutions, and getting to do so in such a collaborative, diverse environment makes coming to work every day an easy choice for me.”
