Current UPOP students can drop-in or schedule an appointment with a Student Program Advisor or with the Employer Relations Manager anytime throughout the academic year. And we encourage students to do so in the fall to get a jump start on their internship search!
Coaching in the spring becomes more intensive for students who are still looking for an internship. Through a series of meetings, staff and students work together to develop tailored action plans for success. Each student is assigned to a staff member who helps kick the internship search into high gear and hold students accountable--something we all need from time to time. Staff continue to work with students until their summer plans are set, and are on call to answer questions throughout the process.
UPOP is a large program, but we are also a community. Students who have graduated from the program, or PostPOPpers, are also invited to meet with staff for professional coaching as they advance in their careers. "Once a UPOPper, always a UPOPper."
