College Major: Double: Supply Chain Management and Marketing

State: Maryland

CWP: 2005 to 2006

"Immediately after graduation, CWP definitely strengthened my resume as it showed I was internally driven to accomplish tough goals. It also showed that I had managed people. As time goes by, you will find that CWP isn't as beneficial to your resume as you gain more relevant experience in the industry you are part of. However, by the time this happens, you will likely have leveraged the skills you learned in CWP to give you an advantage in your new found industry. For myself, as a product person, that definitely came in the way of setting clear expectations and communicating them in a palatable way (especially when the message is not good!)."

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

I changed careers 3 years after graduation from manufacturing to technology, and in the 4 years since I have quickly been promoted to the 5 person senior management team of a 60+ person $100mm+ company.
