CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Learned what hard work, determination, and networking really means in a "nothing to lose" environment.

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

Great resume builder for all interviews. Current job has many similarities in prospecting and work ethic needed to succeed.

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?

Gary - thanks for taking a chance with me.

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

Hard work does pay off.

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

Still hang out with some of the guys on my team---few will potentially be clients.


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

Hire staff to knock on doors, work every weekend, get out of your comfort zone.

Many college students struggle to choose between an internship specific to their target industry or doing CWP. What advice would you give them on this subject if they wanted to enter your career field?

What you study is not likely to be what you do for the rest of your life---this internship will force you to acquire skills that are universal in life.

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

Have a great network.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

Cancun was awesome!

Last words of wisdom

I've met a few people that tried CWP and failed----you feel that much more accomplished when you know it wasn't a scam and you succeed.
