Q&A with Evan

What attracted you to UPS?

I was attracted to UPS because I’ve known a few people that work in UPS engineering, and they seem to really enjoy their jobs.

At a high level, can you tell us about your internship role?

Essentially what I do is optimize routes that the drivers will follow to deliver packages.

What has your internship/co-op given you the opportunity to learn so far?

I’ve learned to exercise patience when working with particular programs, and how to use a proprietary, high-use specific program when it comes to Industrial Engineering applications.

Share some tips for making the most of your UPS internship, such as networking with other interns and learning about the company’s culture.

I think it's really important to get to know the people you work with, they're not just a drone in an office. They are people too—you want to get to know them. Additionally, just never stop asking questions, because that’s really how you’ll learn.

What do you enjoy the most about UPS’s company culture?

I enjoy how welcoming everybody has been so far. Nobody has turned me down—when I ask a question, they treat me like one of their own.

In what ways has your work felt meaningful thus far in your internship?

The meaningful aspect of my internship has been knowing that the route solutions I’m generating are actually going to make the drivers’ day-to-day easier.

What are your career goals? How do you feel your internship will positively impact your career goals?

After my undergrad I’d like to go to law school and specialize in data privacy. What I think I’ll take away from UPS Industrial Engineering is the critical thinking and process optimization mindset and how that can be better applied in other facets of my professional career.

What separates UPS’s internship program from the other internship opportunities you looked into?

I think what separates the UPS internship program is that they actually have a program, a lot of places I looked into just kind of throw you into a work environment, but there’s regiments set up in UPS that actually kind of guide you so you're learning as an intern.
