CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP is an entrepreneurial proving ground, providing the opportunity to learn, grow and leave with a wealth of knowledge only real life business experiences can offer.

How did your CWP experience impact your career? Immediately after graduation? Now?

I thrived in the recruiting side of CWP. I excelled in sourcing potential interns and getting them excited about the opportunity. Immediately following my time with CWP I held sales training roles, temporary placement management all leading towards creating my own recruiting company.

What do you want to tell your clients about what it meant to work with them and how it has helped you get to where you are today?

Don't recall any specific client, but each one offered me an opportunity to learn something new about the client relationship.

What was the greatest lesson you learned from your CWP experience?

CWP gave me an environment to learn that failures are part of the entrepreneurial process and that creating your own path in the business world is possible.

How has the friendships and networks you built during CWP affected you?

I mostly keep in touch with CWP alums through social media and texts.

If you had to come up with an one line slogan for CWP, what would it be? :)

What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

Nothing will be easy. It'll require hard work and some long hours. But think of that time as an investment in your business future.

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

I feel the dynamic nature of what CWP offers will benefit someone in almost any career field. Some of the best lessons about recruiting, from hiring painters to future interns, I learned in my CWP years.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

To be honest, some of the speeches from the Partners and some guest speakers are memories that stick with me the most. I enjoyed giving training talks in front of a group of new interns a lot.

Last words of wisdom

Nothing is out of reach for anyone. Keep chasing your dream, and never stop learning.
