Having graduated with a degree in Accounting from University of Minnesota – Duluth, Nicole began her career search. Her college job working for Spring introduced her to the field of customer service – one she grew to love and knew was the right fit for her. At the time, CW Technology was offering a part-time position assisting the administration team. Jumping onto this opportunity, little did Nicole know that this was the start of her professional career. Within just a year, CW Technology recognized Nicole’s skillset, knowledge, and passion to help others, and knew she had a permanent place at the company. Thirteen years later, she continues to grow professionally and personally at CW Technology.

With today’s online applications and services – such as Indeed and Glassdoor – taking over professional recruitment, it has become exceptionally rare for an individual to simply walk into a business front, inquiring about available job opportunities.

When Sharon Skeen joined CW Technology in 2007, things were a little bit different than they are now… Like many of us in this industry, IT wasn’t where her story at the company started. Having completed a degree in nursing, Sharon discovered that, while helping people was her passion, nursing wasn’t the direction she wanted to continue in. “I had worked in various office settings prior to coming to CW and was always the person that people seemed to turn to for computer help. I realized then that I could focus on the IT side of things and still make a difference,” remembers Sharon. With her new goal in mind, Sharon began focusing on finding a job that would allow her to gain experience in IT.
