CWP: 2008

"Originally I planned to be an investigative journalist. My college work experience, undergraduate and graduate degrees are the foundation for this. As President of the Missouri College Media Association (2009), I realized it would be important to gain an understanding of the news' business model to supplement my understanding of the editorial side. After graduating, a great work opportunity came up in business technology, so I took that to round out my experience. CWP was for me the equivalent of a minor in business, and I applied many of the lessons learned there by my work at one of the top 20 global brands. Fundamentally, my experience selling, marketing and recruiting with CWP helped land a job as the first UKI 'early talent' for an inside sales team."
