Employer Networking Luncheons

Jessica Jones
UPOP's networking luncheons are a "mini Career Fair" just for UPOP students, with hundreds of employers who are planning to hire sophomores.

A culmination to each of UPOP's two weeklong workshops, the Employer Networking Luncheons are an opportunity for students to use their newly honed networking skills to engage with hundreds of UPOP partner employers. Participating employers represent a wide variety of industries, and recruit across all majors.

At this "mini career fair" for UPOP, employers are invited to network with UPOP sophomores, collect résumés, and engage in discussions with students about internship opportunities. These events are a great way for employers to engage with hundreds of UPOP students and share insights about the meaningful contributions students can make in their companies. This is one of the most exciting events of the UPOP year: many students eventually secure their summer internships during these events! 

Dates for the Class of 2019 Networking Luncheons: 
Friday, January 13, 2017, & Friday, February 3, 2017.

Luncheon invitations with a registration link are sent out in November.
