CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP was a great building block to meet great people, learn how to be organized, and accomplish more than you ever thought possible.

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

It was a really impressive mark on my resume, running my own business and showing companies that I myself drove revenue. The one draw back is that it was not in an office setting.

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

Communication skills. Interacting with people one on one, in a sales environment was key. Also just picking up interpersonal skills and how to communicate with people (customers, co-workers etc) was helpful.

Advice

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

Embrace the challenge and realize how beneficial it is to run your own business in college. You make good bonds, and learn invaluable skills not just with painting but organization, and communication skills that last forever.

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

If you know what you want to do, put everything behind your goals and go achieve it. If you do not know what you want to do, put everything you have into finding that out.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

The weekend we went to go work on a house for training. I believe ours was in Fredericksburg, but it was a great bonding time while we actually got to take action and learn techniques etc.

Last words of wisdom

"We take communication for granted because we do it so frequently, but it's actually a complex process."
