    Collin Martin, Global Supply Chain Management

    “The CRP is a great way to improve as a professional in many areas. Since joining, I have grown in professionalism, communication, but most importantly in confidence! On top of this, [it] does a great job of getting us out in front of employers.”


    Jesse Gresham, Accounting

    “Without the CRP, I would not have received offers for the two internships I interviewed for in my fall semester.”


    Madeline Indiano, Hospitality & Tourism

    “The Career Readiness Program is certainly something you would want to participate in and have on your resume. I received my first internship opportunity through the CRP during my first semester participating in the program. The CRP helps you stand out from every other student at WVU.”


    Nada Aboraya, Accounting and MIS

    “Quite possibly the best opportunity [Chambers] has to offer to its most committed and eager students that want to improve their strengths and work on their weaknesses.”
