    My experience at UFCP has been nothing short of amazing. The skills, attitude, and professional experience I have gained are unparalleled from any other opportunity available as a student. Running your own business is never easy, but UFCP shortens that learning curve to a single, high achieving, summer. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone looking for more out of their degree.

    I have been thrilled with my experience with UFCP. I was challenged regularly, and able to learn a lot from my 2 years as manager. Being back in the classroom I am able to relate the theory I’m learning today to the practical experience of running my own painting business, which is a major benefit!

    “Working with University First Class Painters has provided me with the greatest opportunity not only to learn about running a proper business but to learn and grow as a person. This job allows you to see the return on work you put into your business with no true limitations on the success a manager can achieve. This was my best opportunity to gain valuable business and life experience, by also making more money than any other summer job. “It is not only how hard you work, but how smart you work that makes one successful”.

    Whether you are in management, engineering or even psychology it is a valuable lesson to be in charge and manage a group of people and complete a task. All in all I feel that if you’re dedicated, self motivated and want to relieve financial stress while receiving relevant life experience UFCP is the way to go.

    UFCP is not just another summer job. It provides room for growth and success based on the work that you put in. It has shown me the kind of success I can have long term by building on the skills needed to run a business and I will use those skills for the rest of my professional career.

    UFCP has enhanced previous skills and developed skills that will be useful throughout my Engineering degree. Having been able to provide quality service and having personal connections with my clients had allowed me to have such a successful first year with this company. The support system of the company as a whole, has pushed me to challenge myself in ways that I didn’t think possible! This has allowed the quality and hard work of not only myself but my painters to not go unnoticed. UFCP was the push I needed to continue and uplift motivation, not only in a work aspect but within my continuing education.
