“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
William Arthur Ward

In life, it is important to show our gratitude towards others. Although that sounds like common sense, it is not always easy to express our appreciation. We will often assume that people either get thanks from other people, or that they already know how thankful we are for them. We are usually wrong on both counts.

Giving thanks to those around you and showing appreciation, is an important aspect of life.

At the Telfer School of Management Career Centre, we organize an annual event in March to acknowledge the continued involvement of our collaborators, employers, students, and all who have contributed to our activities and events throughout the year.

This year, in addition to highlighting the people who make Telfer such an amazing community, we wanted to set the stage for others share their stories of appreciation. We are therefore launching the #TelferStar campaign.

Our challenge to you

Within the Telfer community, is there a person you look up to? Do you have a mentor who has helped you during your time as a student? Or has someone that you mentor made immense progress? Do you know of a student who deserves to be recognized for their achievements? Or has a faculty member gone above and beyond in their role? Tell us.

Leave a comment on any of our social media posts, or post on your own profiles using the hashtag #TelferStar (Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn).

Your messages and photos will be featured at the 2018 edition of the Career Centre Celebration, our grand recognition event taking place March 27th. There are also some great prizes to be won!

So tell us, who is YOUR #TelferStar?
