Resume Tip #10: Your email address should be informative and look professional
The most popular email address providers are Gmail, Yahoo! and Outlook. Even so, don’t register an awkward email address like email@example.com
Resume Tip #10: Your email address should be informative and look professional.
What you need to do:
- Consider buying a domain name (e.g. your-last-name.com);
- Use Google Apps to manage your custom domain and email address;
- If you’re still going to go with one of the public email providers, use your full name for the alias instead of an embarrassing nickname.
By paying about $10/year for a domain, you can have your own personalized email address, like firstname.lastname@example.org, that’s easy to remember. Plus, once you have your own domain, you can host your resume there.
