Sean MacDonald

Manager at Bravo Brio Restaurant Group
Industry: Restaurant

College Major: Business Administration - Marketing

CWP: 2010

"CWP made me realize a lot about myself and my time management. Although I didn't directly impact my job search much since I did it as a sophomore, it did give me the tools to graduate a year early through managing my time better, and knowing what I was capable of once I did start my career."

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

After traveling the country and opening several new restaurants, I stood out enough that the District Partner from my home area promoted me and had me relocate (paid for by my company) to come and improve her district. She saw my performance in opening restaurants with high standards and deliverables to guests, and wanted me out in Maryland to bring her standards up. My promotion has come after over 2 years of work for the company and working my way up from a busser position to a restaurant manager for one of the few companies growing through the recession and in a very crowded market.

Managing Director & Coach at Ridgewood Tri Athlete
Industry: Health and Fitness

College Major: Financial

CWP: 2005

"CWP taught me to be organized and to work smart. It's the little things that can often make the biggest difference. Immediately after graduating from Penn State I parlayed by CWP experience and was hired by GE Captial. I worked in finance for 4 years. Combining my past experiences, passion and work ethic I resigned from GE to open my own triathlon training and coaching business. Most would say it was crazy to leave the job I had at GE, but most don't work for themselves. I couldn't be more happy."
