You CAN use your university email address when applying for internships. In fact, sometimes it helps as employers tend to be cautious that students are really enrolled in school during the internship term. However, make sure you understand that these don&t last forever. Normally, people do not use their university email address post college. It&s a good idea to create a free gmail account and start setting up your professional email address. When you finish with your internships and as you meet professional contacts, give people your gmail address, as this is something you will always have no matter where you work or go to school. You want to start utilizing the address book on your email server to keep track of your contacts. Also, check out the calendar feature and synchronize it will your phone.
