  • Will (a junior in college) explained how he experienced gratitude often during his internship at News America Marketing this past summer. Specifically at the end of his internship his boss took all the interns out to lunch to celebrate their hard work and to show his appreciation. Will explains how it felt good that his boss noticed his hard work all summer and was rewarding him with something as simple as lunch.
  • I then asked him how he expressed gratitude in the workplace. He explained how his bosses from the summer wrote him recommendation letters and helped him prepare for recruiting. After talking with them he made sure to express his thanks by sending them hand written thank you notes for their time and help.
