CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Gave me career direction.

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

I still get recruiters reaching out to me because I did CWP.

What do you want to tell your clients about what it meant to work with them and how it has helped you get to where you are today?

Favorite clients were a couple with 3 kids. Husband cursed me off when I called after making the initial lead. Wife called back and apologized. I would tell them that I love their highlighter yellow shed.

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

Let go of the things you cannot control.

If you had to come up with an one line slogan for CWP, what would it be? :)

Painting is easy.

Advice

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

Do it. Keep doing it.

Many college students struggle to choose between an internship specific to their target industry or doing CWP. What advice would you give them on this subject if they wanted to enter your career field?

CWP covers many, many industries. What good is an internship in a field you end up disliking?

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

Always be closing.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Walking out of someone's house with a check for $15k. I never saw that much money in one place before.

Last words of wisdom

Complete the program. Do not give up. Just finish because the experience will pay you back over and over and over. Worth more than my degree.
