UPOP was one of the select programs I chose to commit time to because the program coordinators are among the nicest, most helpful people I have met on campus in terms of career advising. When I needed to renegotiate acceptance deadlines for internships, UPOP staff helped me work out which offers would suit my goals better, and coached me on how to negotiate with companies tactfully and professionally. Whenever my friends have asked me tough internship questions I couldn't help with, I have always referred them to the UPOP office, citing its open-door policy. I have learned how to handle applications and internships gracefully with the help of "office hours" at the UPOP office.
