Careers and Employability Service

Katie Kilburn of the Careers and Employability Service approached the LRT team concerned that email sent to the All Student mailing list were not being seen as the All Student RSS feed only displays the last 5 items. In conversion with Katie she mentioned a site that has all the information they would like the students to see. Marketing and Communications provided a RSS feed to the site and we were able to provide a RRS feed on MyMMU messages page
