UPOP goes the extra mile to offer high-touch support to students and employers with visits to students at their summer internship sites. UPOP staff learns more about summer internship experiences by meeting with students, their supervisors, hiring managers, and recruiters. These discussions help inform UPOP staff's advising and programming, and keeps UPOP abreast of the current needs of employers across engineering and business fields.
Site visits are also a great way to strengthen UPOP's relationships with partner employers and build relationships with new organizations, with travel not only to local companies, but also other intern "hot spots" in New York City, Silicon Valley, and more! Lastly, UPOP loves seeing students in action and the great technical contributions UPOP interns are making to their summer companies.
