“I started working in the fields when I was 15. I was tired of living paycheck-to-paycheck and wanted out of that slump. I decided to go to college 20 years after I graduated from high school. While working toward my accounting degree, I received an assignment that changed my life. I had to find an accounting professional and shadow them for a day. The assignment turned into an opportunity when the accountant invited me back as an intern, and that internship eventually turned into a full-time job. It’s all because of CWI that I have this job.” —Jose Nava—Career Success
