As a Massachusetts planning engineer, I am responsible for developing projects that address electrical system issues such as capacity, reliability and asset condition issues.

Why did you choose National Grid?
I chose National Grid for two main reasons. First, I was drawn to the company when I saw the collaborative culture during my interview and heard about all the different opportunities inside the company. Second, I was offered a position in the Graduate Development Program (GDP) which provides additional professional development opportunities and builds a network for graduates as they transition into the professional world. I was excited to get the opportunity to rotate around the company with peers before starting our full time positions, and the GDP was ultimately what made me choose National Grid.
