CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

CWP gave me great insight as to how businesses work and how to be successful in a business environment.

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

The greatest lesson I learned was that even when everything is at its most stressful and demanding getting through it will always lead to greater rewards.


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

Potential: Be prepared for one of the hardest things you'll ever do but know that the benefits out way the demands. Current: Do EVERYTHING your DM tells you to... seriously. Everything.

What's your favorite memory from CWP?


Last words of wisdom

As an engineering student in a civil-related field (work with many contractors) there is nothing that brings more confidence in an interview than being able to talk about how well I'm able to connect and communicate with contractors after actually having been one and knowing what they're dealing with in terms of hours and money, almost no other engineers can bring having been a contractor to the table especially while still in college.
