UPOP mentors made a real difference

Class of 2006 UPOP Alum

I still remember the things that I learned at my UPOP workshop back in January 2004. It was pretty much the only time in my MIT engineering career when a group of smart, cool, and well-spoken professionals sat down with us students and explained how we need to sell ourselves in the "outside world". The "elevator pitch" exercise is something that I STILL find myself explaining all the time to friends who are trying to get job interviews.
