CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Opportunities. I was able to leverage my CWP experience in to full time employment at UHG before a year before I graduated-it's been a snowball effect since then.

Advice

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

Cancun Mexico twice.
