Carson Lipscomb

Software Engineer at Microsoft
Industry: Technology

College Major: Engineering

CWP: 2014

"After CWP I tried confronting many software companies for internships. This internship made me stand out from the rest: it was a conversation starter and is what landed me basically all of my interviews. Without College Works I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten the call back from Microsoft, so I owe CWP a large credit to my career. CWP changed me as a person, pushed me out of my bubble, and influences me every day. "

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

College Major: Business Administration

CWP: 2014

"Now, I am currently applying for full time positions in my field. I graduate next June. CWP gave me a unique skill set and I generally have far more business experience than my peers. All my interviews for jobs post CWP, I use CWP examples to answer interview questions and have yet to be offered a position. The interviewer is usually very impressed with what I know and what I have done. "

College Major: Accounting

CWP: 2013

"My CWP experience gave me a good understanding of how a business works. Prior to the internship I had no business experience, but CWP made me feel like I could start and run my own company. I have not graduated yet, but I feel having CWP on my resume helped me get my previous internship with Quad Graphics."

Izhar Fuentes

Channel Development Manager at Magic Software
Industry: Software

College Major: Business Economics

CWP: 2010

"CWP provided me with the basics and foundation of new business development and all aspects of running a business. Having to have consistent work ethic to finish the program helped me carry those same habits to my life after graduation that help me stand out and be effective. Now I am responsible for one of the largest and fastest growing divisions in my company because of my business background and have thankfully been very successfully. "

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

My proudest accomplishment post-CWP has to be how quickly my career took off, once given the chance to perform. I graduated on a Friday and was reporting for an account management position that following Monday. It gave me a jump start on my career and couldn't be anymore happier with where my career has taken me.

Tina Miller

Medical Device Sales Representative at Alcon Vision Labs
Industry: Medical

College Major: Entrepreneurship

CWP: 2011 to 2012

"I was an intern for CWP initially as a freshman, and went on to be a DM my sophomore year. From their, the experience I gained helped me get a Fortune 500 internship which eventually led to a full time position after college as one of the youngest sales representatives in my field nationally. That would not have been possible without the CWP experience on my resume and the lessons I learned in those two years. "

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

I was hired for my current position hesitantly, because of my age. When I was hired, I was the youngest individual in the entire sales force (at 24), and that was out of over 300 individuals nationwide. I was hired because of my experience and because of my confidence, things that started from my time with CWP.

"CWP gave me the opportunity to lead teams. I put those experiences immediately to work once in the Army. I also learned how to manage a diverse group of stakeholders and that skill is valuable today."

Leaving the Army (my comfort zone), moving across the ocean and starting graduate school in finance and accounting. It was a triple whammy and very difficult yet (so far!) it seems I've come out on top.

Lindsay Moore

College Major: Pre-Law

CWP: 2005 to 2015

"I was going to be a lawyer. I would have been a damn good lawyer too. But if I had chosen that path, I would be living a normal life, working too hard and never making enough money. I would have been normal if I had not accepted the position at CWP. Have you ever met a normal person? They are boring and constantly wishing for something more. They can never be content. If I would have become a lawyer I would still be chasing that insatiable dream. The greatest lesson I learned from CWP is that your career is not your life. Your career is part of your life. CWP gave me a place to grow and learn and shine. CWP was my arena to practice for my big kid life. Now I have so many job offers and Im not even looking for a job. "

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

"Most recently we moved to Zimbabwe with our 9 month old daughter and our second daughter on the way. My husband (CWP Alumni) landed a job building US embassies all over the world. I retired at the ripe old age of 30. For me, being a mom is much more demanding than being a CWP intern, DM, or VP, I know, I have done it all! And that is exactly why I decided to retire-to take on my next challenge. I am proud to say that I live a life with no regrets. CWP taught me to appreciate the opportunity in each situation. I have constantly pushed myself since the day I signed on. I have made plenty of mistakes but each mistake helped me to grow and become the person God intended me to be. I am proud that I can humbly accept challenges and be positive that everything happens for a reason. "
