Navigating the Maze: Effective Strategies

Recruiting at MIT is like drinking from a firehose: employers, with thousands of corporate competitors, have to navigate the complexities of a decentralized campus. How do you find the students and staff contacts you are looking for from among student clubs, labs, departments, special programs, each with its own recruiting policies, procedures and time-frame?  UPOP can both help your company stand out from the crowd, and provide a valuable resource for creating an effective MIT recruiting strategy.

David Gomez ’17 worked at Sonos, Inc., in its Cambridge, Mass., office during the summer of 2015. David’s project involved creating a usage model of the NAND memory in Sonos players. Through this model he was able to give Sonos a better idea of how data gets stored on NAND in the players as well as assess the reliability risks posed by NAND memory failures.

Allison joined UPOP because she felt it was a good way to get a step up in the industrial world and to develop skills crucial to success.

“All these skills are so valuable—negotiation, communication, crucial conversations, how to work as a team, how to function as a project manager,” she says, “and UPOP is a really safe place to learn, practice and fine-tune them.”
