Compliance Counsel

Did you find Duquesne Light’s internship program to be comprehensive?

During my time as an intern in the Office of General Counsel, I was afforded the opportunity to work on several projects involving employees from other departments. No matter the department, I was impressed by the collegiality, expertise, and positivity of each team member.

How did it specifically prepare you for your career with the company?

In my role today, I collaborate with many of these same individuals, and, having already built working-relationships together, we are able to accomplish shared goals more effectively.
