It All Adds Up, Career Services’ career wellness campaign, launched this week in the Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC) with students taking a few minutes to reflect on how it all added up for them.

The purpose of It All Adds Up is to help students reflect on their activities and interests in and outside the classroom and build understanding and confidence that what they were doing was “adding up.”

To add it all up, students are encouraged to write their various classroom and extra-curricular initiatives on a whiteboard/chalkboard and post a picture of themselves with their whiteboard on Instagram using the #ItAllAddsUp hashtag.

Originating at Queen’s University as a partnership between Career Services and the Alma Mater Society, It All Adds Up has spread to over 48 career centres across Canada, and the globe, with the Bader International Study Centre participating for the first time this year.
