The UPOP intern performed well beyond the promise of his sophomore-level experience, so we are very lucky we took the chance to get to know him better. He kept his long-term infrastructure improvement project on track, collecting requirements and optimizing code, and delivered a working & documented project by the end of our short summer. He worked well both in a small team, and on his own, depending on availability of others, and kept focus despite large and variable demands of small daily interruptions. He worked with engineers and managers in several other departments, and represented our group well within the company at large. I expect other managers in our own company to compete with me when we recruit him later!
