As a Rotational Analyst, I am gaining a great understanding of the Energy industry. From completing a variety of daily tasks such as energy and transmission checkouts with counterparties and publishing the daily profit and loss statements, to leading a major project, my role has provided exposure to the inner-workings of the business. I’ve felt fully integrated with my teams from day one and I am encouraged to continually challenge myself. At Powerex I’ve had the opportunity to learn a multitude of invaluable knowledge from experts in the field, and have enjoyed getting to know my coworkers across different areas of the company. Powerex has a fun, friendly, and collaborative work culture and it has been a privilege to work for an organization which is bigger than myself.

The rotational internship at Powerex gave me an incredible opportunity to launch a career in the electricity and clean energy sector.  By rotating through various business groups at Powerex, I was able to acquire a more well-rounded knowledge of the energy trading industry that I am sure will be instrumental to my career going forward. The experience I gained through each one of my rotations allowed me to better understand some of the intricacies that exist in the dynamic and unique industry in which Powerex operates in. As someone fresh off graduation, this experience was invaluable. Powerex’s superb company culture makes for an environment where even interns are encouraged to take on projects that truly add value, all while being surrounded by colleagues with decades of experience who are more than willing to help younger employees get up to speed. I am truly grateful to have come through this program and look forward to continuing my career here at Powerex.

Inherent to Powerex is a culture of learning and sharing knowledge. I have found it extremely rewarding to be a part of the team and to have the opportunity to learn from talented experts in the field. I also really enjoy the fast-paced, exciting, and often complex nature of work as well as the vibrant, fun-natured environment.
