Do you want to receive the latest job alerts? Do you want employers to think you are organised and will communicate well? Do you want to be made aware of some exciting leadership opportunities around the University?
Then make sure your contact details are both up to date and appropriate. You wouldn’t believe how many students miss out on jobs or employer presentations because they didn’t update their CareerHub details to their new email or preferred address.
You also wouldn’t believe the inappropriate email addresses. Just look through your own inbox from friends and imagine what an employer might think of some of those! Perhaps the safest is to use your Victoria email address but also to check it! Always be professional. As a final point, always ensure you have the right details on your CV. It should be updated and checked before applying for any job.
