CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

A world of opportunities!

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

I was offered a job before graduation, largely due to the experiences I gained through my involvement with CWP.

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

Opportunities are sought out, seized, and accomplished through hard work and dedication. Good things in life are presented to those who put the required time and effort in to achieve them.

Advice

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

Keep your hopes high and your motivation higher! An internship with CWP is not for the faint of heart. Those who strive to better themselves, and those who want more out of life will be the ones who benefit most from their time as a CWP Branch Manager.

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

Be motivated, driven, and confident in your ability to succeed. Everyday do something that makes you uncomfortable. Learn from it, grow from it, and become a more competent person from it in your professional, as well as your personal life.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Payroll Fridays, enough said!
