Professionalism is key when applying for a job or a placement - even when it comes to email addresses.
Professionalism is key – even when it comes to email addresses. Imagine for just a second you are a recruiter or hiring manager. An application or CV floats across your desk. You begin reading it and get to the part where the applicant has listed their email address as: partyanimal123@***.com. Now, what would be your first thought? Would you take this candidate seriously? Would you call them to find out more about their qualifications? Would they get an interview? How do you address them in the email?
Now let’s take a step back and review your personal email addresses. Is it appropriate Msthing@djfhgajd.com? Please take a few moments to ensure you are professional at all levels. If you need to create an email address just for your career searches, that’s ok! You want to make sure your application is memorable for all the right reasons.
So a quick tip on your application: make sure your email address is appropriate and professional. If you need to set up a second account for your job searches, then do it. Remember, you are marketing Brand You – and Brand You deserves a fighting chance.
