CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP gives you the opportunity to run a business and inherit all the benefits and challenges associated with being a business owner.

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

It made me understand that being an entrepreneur was not for me and helped me find a new path in my life. It also provided an amazing resume builder that applied to every interview I have done since finishing my internship with CWP.

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

Never make a promise you can not keep and do what you said you were going to do.


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

Don't expect it to be a cake walk.

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

Keep your grades high and attend a good school.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

I had a good friend change his major from being a gym teacher to becoming a business major after being one of my marketers and painters for the summer.
