Zach Cocagne

Mechanical Engineer at Rockline Industries
Industry: Consumer Goods

College Major: Mechanical Engineering

CWP: 2007 to 2008

"In college, it taught me how far I could push myself. I created a profitable, successful business out of nothing with no business experience. That's amazing to say! It also made me realize how important it was to balance my personal, professional, and social life and has kept me from developing into a "workaholic". After graduation, because of my College Works experiences, it helped me decide what type of company I wanted to work for because I realized the importance of great company culture. Today, separating the stresses of home and work life would not be as easy if I had not gone through CWP. Balance is so important, and the CWP culture helped me realize that."

Alexandra Sitka

Market Development Representative at Cintas

College Major: Entrepreneurial Management

"I would not have been offered the job at Cintas since they rarely hire fresh college grads. Ironically, on my first ride along days with a Cintas rep, we sold to one of my favorite clients businesses to italize our uniforms. That rep sold the deal, because of the relationship I had built with them during College Works. Also, I have had the opportunity to consult alongside an entrepreneur who I met by selling to him through College Works. You never know when you will utilize the relationships you build here."
