CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP taught me more about what it takes to conduct business in the real world than I learned in class at PSU.

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

CWP was a tremendous help obtaining the other internships I had throughout my career at PSU, as well as my first job post college. Simply put, CWP is a great addition to any resume.

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

I learned how important it is to build a network both in your career and in life.

Advice

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

My advice for potential CWP participants is that if you are interested in a career in business, you should become a CWP intern. My advice for current CWP participants is that great references are everything, work hard, and don't forget to enjoy yourselves because it will be over before you know it!

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

This is a tough one! haha Probably our trip to the Poconos when we went white water rafting and paint balling at Skirmish.

Last words of wisdom

Work hard, play hard.
