What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

After I was hired at my first job post-CWP, I was promoted within two months showing my capabilities exceed quotas and learn quickly.

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP has brought me to meet my most valued relationships today, and has jumpstarted my career. CWP has been responsible for much of my success and happiness. For that, CWP has meant so much to me, and am grateful to part of the CWP family.

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

CWP impacted my career immediately after college. I graduated in May of this year, and with 3 years being at CWP I was able to land a job before even graduating.

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

Relationships are EVERYTHING.


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

Never give up, and look for the positive in everything you're doing. Perseverance is so important, as well as showing loyalty with a company, and showing that you aren't the type of person to give up. Employers will want to see you can handle obstacles and navigate yourself in various environments, as well as hold yourself accountable.

Last words of wisdom

Don't psych yourself out that you can't do something. Create goals, put your mind to it, don't hold back, and enjoy the ride!!
