It All Adds Up Header

Have you ever thought?

  • "I feel like I'm constantly rushing but I'm never sure I'm doing enough."
  • "I'm afraid if I don't get involved in enough extra-curriculars that I won't get a good job or get into grad school."
  • "I'd like to try some different things...but I'm not sure what to let go of or how to choose what's 'best'."
  • "I sometimes feel overwhelmed by trying to be super engaged."

How about stopping for a moment to recognize and celebrate how It All Adds Up?

  • Make informed decisions about how best to spend your time (which will look different for everyone)
  • Develop confidence, knowing that if you are engaged in interesting things, you are developing skills, knowledge, networks, etc. that will “add up.”

In partnership with Queen’s University student government (Alma Mater Society), and Career Development has devised a career health campaign called It All Adds Up.  The primary purposes of the campaign are to:

  • Reflect on the benefits of your curricular and co-curricular activities
  • Feel less stressed about your career, knowing that all yoru experiences "add up"
  • Reduce some of the pressure and anxiety to keep “doing more”
  • Get thinking about your career earlier during your university life
  • Feel more confident about your connection to your career
