How did Careers With A Purpose get started?
Careers With A Purpose (CWAP) was founded by Gary Hansen. Gary is a career Human Resource professional having worked in both corporate America for 10 years and in a para-church ministry for 15 years as the Director of Human Resources.
In the fall of 2008 Gary was part of an executive leadership team that was down-sized with eight executives being laid off. The emotional impact of this experience, at the height of the recession, is what led Gary to start Careers With A Purpose in February of 2009. Careers With A Purpose is a (501c3) non-profit ministry based in Denver, Colorado.
