"CWP definitely helped. When I told people I supervised others and knocked on doors in college, I stood out. And when my team hires people now who are a few years out of college, I look for the same thing. We don't usually hire college students straight out of school, but if we did, we would look at grades, recommendations, and most importantly, jobs in college. All the management, sales, and cold calling skills you learn at CWP would make me think, "Wow that kid has motivation and is a hard worker and will figure things out.""

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

My proudest accomplishment would not be work, it would be my children. My advice is that when you're young and single, build your career. Spend the hours required and build relationships with others, because when you have a family later, family is most important.
