CWP Career Impact

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

My experience doing cold calling over the phone was what got my foot in the door of the banking industry. The interview I had for my first position ended up being a role play session where I recalled my cold-call script from memory. I nailed it and got the job.

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

Wherever you find yourself working, whether that be for yourself or for a corporation, be an entrepreneur and take ownership of your business.

Advice

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Getting to go to Cancun for free and getting the Missouri award and having people from all over the country asking me how I did it was really rewarding.
