UPOP was one of the best programs that I did at MIT. It was through UPOP that I got my summer internship, learned how to use many job search engines and how to network with company representatives. Additionally, the workshops that we did during UPOP (example: engineering team, the boss and the financial team trying to reach a decision with different goals in mind or at the job site, having troubles communicating with your boss about your abilities) were incredibly helpful since during my first summer internship, a lot of those scenarios actually happened at work, and I was already prepared to deal with them. Overall, I really enjoyed the program and it was incredibly helpful in helping me with my career. Thank you.
