Advice

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

If you are going to do the internship, just give it your all and do not give up or get down on

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?

Honestly, it just kind of depends on what you want to do in your given career field. If you want to manage/lead in that field, then you can learn a lot at CWP.

Always be ready for the next challenge

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

The good ol' trip to Canada.
