CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP gave me a whole new take on sacrifice and hard work. It taught me to push myself harder than ever before and it taught me not to give up. There were many peaks and valleys during my time at CWP and I'm glad I went through it all. CWP gave me the base I needed to get my job today and guide me in choosing a career.

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

Gave me the experience and skills to get an internship in corporate america the next summer, which led to the job I have today.

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

To make sacrifices if you really want to succeed.
