CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

It was an accelerated growing experience that I have no regrets about.

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

I would say that I know how to work harder than 95% of other kids my age. I also have leadership skills, experience in contracting, and the ability to get out and get a decent amount of work done with people I hardly even know.

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

Stick up for yourself, and never give up.


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

Don't give up - keep learning, and keep moving!
