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

You can create journal entries right from your inbox. 

The first time you use the Career Journal, you will be asked to choose how often you would like to receive email updates. The Career Journal will then send you prompt emails at regular intervals. 

To add a journal entry using email:

1. Open a Career Journal prompt email and create a reply

2. Write your update in the body of your reply

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

4. Click Send

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 New Journal Entry 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.
