    I'm on my gap year and I've had 2 jobs so far.

    I had one in November where I only stayed a month (wasn't fired).

    I only started my current one a few days ago, so that would count as December 2010 when filling in the UCAS form.

    I recently substituted one of my choices (from Edinburgh to Kings College London) on UCAS today on 4th December, but my form was sent off a couple of weeks ago - before I got the job in November and the one I got a few days ago, so the employment section of my UCAS form is blank.

    I want to show my unis I'm doing something during my gap year and making use of the time. Should I bother e-mailing KCL to mention the job I did in November 2010 and the December 2010 job? Would it make it seem like I'm not the kind of person who can stick to something and harm rather than help my application?

    Also, if I e-mail to tell them about a job I finished in November and the send date on my UCAS form is in December, surely that would look odd?

    Don't bother emailing them. If they give you an interview you can mention it then. If you hadn't sent your form it would be worth mentioning but it would look like you're desparate if you email now.
