Students can create accounts on uConnect and change their preferences at any point, allowing them to receive newsletters tailored to the unique career and academic content they identify interest in.

Signing up for emails and managing preferences is quick, easy and intuitive. Users simply select Login or Signup in the top right hand corner of the screen. If they're signing up, they'll be presented with a screen to input basic profile information, including name, email, and major. 

After filling out any required fields, students can select the communities and content categories they want featured in their daily, weekly, or monthly newsletters, based on their individual interests and majors.

The options students see when selecting their preferences directly reflects the communities and content categories published, meaning admin have full power of customizing the content students can choose to include in their automated and customized emails. 

For example, if an admin user publishes a job category titled “Internships,” students will now have the option to select “Internships” in their profile preferences if they want to receive newsletters regarding available internship positions.

Not only can schools customize the topics students have the ability to select as their preferences, but they can also customize profile sign ups based on user type (i.e. alumni, staff, employers, etc.). 

Depending on whether you’re an alumni, staff member, or employer creating an account, you can be required to submit different types of basic information. This ensures each user type has the option to select content that better matches their individual preferences, and furthermore allows admin to set up newsletters in a way that mirrors the topics they find to be valuable for each audience type.

Here are the basic fields required upon sign up for each user type:
