What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

Getting my first full time offer

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

The only person holding me back from success is me.

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

It demonstrated that I am able to work with people in a management and client relations role.

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?

2011: Emily Hellesen gave me confidence to complete my jobs for the rest of the summer.

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

Never settle. No matter what.

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

My CWP buddy Garrett Galen was my roommate for a year and will be in my wedding next June.

Advice

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

Never settle because you will never know what you were capable of.

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

I personally think it's dependent on a few things. The best time for the internship I believe is sophomore year. You have the relevant experience going into your junior year when you are looking for an internship matched up with your ideal career path.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Shooting my fellow interns at paintball sponsored by Sherwin Williams. Unfortunately, I never got to shoot Brent Miller.
