CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP taught me the importance of business versus personal relationships.

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

Communication skills and customer relations.

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

If someone isn't pulling their weight, coach them up or out. Firing a person isn't easy but losing money out of your pocket for someone else's stupidity or laziness is unacceptable.


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

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