CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

A step ahead of my peers and a network of driven business professionals.

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

I haven't graduated yet, but I received multiple internships due to my experience at CWP.

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?

Thank you for working with me and being flexible when it was not possible to start some jobs until late in the summer.

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

Don't give up and work hard and you can accomplish what might seem impossible.

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

I met someone who did CWP at an internship I did.

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

Painting houses for the future.

Advice

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

Potential- if you dedicate yourself to it even for one year it will be worth it. Current- some jobs might seem impossible and you might mess up but learn from them and work harder and you will look back on a summer and be extremely proud of yourself.

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

I would suggest CWP any summer before the summer after your senior year- at that point an accounting internship would probably be more helpful in landing a job.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Our paintball meeting.
