Dozens of UPOP students took advantage of our popular fall Mock Interview Nights, where seasoned industry volunteers interview our students for mock jobs, offering them valuable feedback so that they are well prepared for their internship search.
UPOP takes the "practice" part of its name seriously, and makes sure that our students have abundant opportunities to engage frequently and meaningfully with a wide range of employers, through field trips and on-campus networking and panel events.
"UPOP was illuminating!" said Gina Han ’19, a mechanical engineering major. "It opened up a lot of things for me ... UPOP really helped me navigate the career side of things, and helped me know how to work on a team, how to delegate roles, and clearly communicate."
