CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Lasting friendships.

How did your CWP experience impact your career? Immediately after graduation? Now?

It gave me an opportunity to work really hard. The hard work gave me an opportunity to learn a ton of skills really fast. CWP was my boot-camp business school.

What was the greatest lesson you learned from your CWP experience?

1: You can, and should, learn something from every person you come in contact with. 2: Say yes to everything.

Advice

What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

Be foolish, take risks, and learn from some of them.

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

Volunteer for difficult things.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

My first estimate that I closed. I felt like I was king of the world. Or the Top Performers limo trip from Davis to SF and that crazy night in the city.
