Creating a new journal entry

To get the most out of your Career Journal, make a habit of updating it regularly.
There are two ways of making a new journal entry: Using email, and using VisualCV.

Using Email

You can create journal entries right from your inbox. 

The Career Journal will then send you prompt emails at regular intervals. Instructions for changing your email settings can be seen here.

To add a journal entry using email:

1. In your email inbox, open a Career Journal prompt email.

2. Write your update in the body of your reply.

3. Attach any files you would like to include in the entry.

4. Send your reply.

That's it! Your response will be added to your Career Journal for the date you sent the email. To edit the entry, log in to VisualCV and access the entry there.

Using VisualCV

If you prefer more customization, you can make updates directly in VisualCV.
To create an entry while logged in to VisualCV:
1. Navigate to Career Journal tab

2. Click the blue + Create New button at the top of the timeline.

3. In the form that open, fill out each of the fields

Note: All fields are optional except the Title and Date

4. Click Publish.

And you're done! You can return to the entry at any time to edit or delete it.
