Job Seekers - Choosing the Right Personal Email Address

 


Visitors: 324

The first thing an employer will notice is your email address. When an employer receives your resume via the web or an email, your email address will most likely be at the top of that document. Now, be very cautious when selecting an email to use. Try to reframe from using slang term email addresses or email addresses that may offend other people aside yourself. Emails like nobodylikeme@thisisanexample.com or icantcomplain@thisisanexample.com may distance an employer from you. With these sorts of email addresses, your resume may not ever be reviewed.

I recommend using emails that represent your name like, john. smith@thisisanexample.com or jsmith@thisisanexample.com. This will give the employer an idea that you represent professionalism. I have seen too many email addresses that display car names or favorite actors, these email addresses are in better taste and use with family and friends. Remember, try to use an email address that will represent your kin name. The first impression is the most important, and to lose an employers attention due to an unfriendly email address is starting your career search off on a bad foot.

Teenagers and young adults please take note, remember to choose a professional email address. Yahoo (http://www.yahoo.com ), Hotmail (http://www.hotmail.com ), Gmail (http://gmail.google.com ), and others offer free email addressees.
