Hear from some of our recent interns below as they share their experience at ISO New England:

“The ISO-NE internship provided me a chance to see deep inside the industry. The company culture is inviting to exploring and learning. My team did not just help me learn what I needed to know to work on my project, but they also went out of their way to offer to teach me about the day-to-day processes they handle and included me in their long-term plan discussions. Other employees outside my department were also more than willing to schedule times to meet and answer questions I had about what their department does.”
     - Michael, Intern Summer 2022, Power System Model Administration and Support

“The ISO-New England internship gave me chance to work with leading industry software and have a chance to be at the front-end of change for the New England Grid.” 
     - Annalyse, Intern Summer 2020, Power System Model Management 

“This summer is one I'll never forget. The work I did was meaningful and enjoyable and I loved every second of it. Everyone that works here is so personable and willing to talk, not to mention that I got to meet our senior staff, including a luncheon with our CEO. I can’t wait to continue my internship into the fall, and maybe even beyond that!”
     - Dominic, Intern Summer 2022, Innovation and Automation of Resource and Special Studies

“Interning at ISO New England this summer has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I contributed to numerous essential projects that not only impacted the productivity of my department, but also impacted the ease of the customer experience. I am very grateful to ISO New England for allowing me to have an impactful role in the company, even as an intern!”
