The following are steps you should take now to begin to present yourself to the world as a professional.
Get a professional email address. You do not want to use an email address that includes either a cute or provocative nickname. Your professional email should include a variation of your name. You can use your UAlbany student email.
Change all of your voice mail messages to be professional. A voice mail message should be something similar to the following:
"Hello, you have reached Fred Smith. I am unable to take your call right now. Please leave a message after the tone. Thank you."
