Your E-Mail Address May Be Costly
With so many people competing for the same job(s) these days, applicants should do everything in their power to ensure that they don’t eliminate themselves for a potential job opportunity. Career counselors and recruiters say that the most common mistake most applicants make is what is usually atop of the resume.Counselors and recruiters say that one’s e-mail address can be the single determining factor as to whether or not an applicant gets a job interview or not. With it nearly impossible to get an e-mail account with your name solely in it, many refer to “e-mail handles” that can be a deterrent for recruiters and/or employers. Heads-up, it may not be wise to have handles that are provocative or “immature in nature” when it comes to posting it on a resume. It is recommended that you attempt to create an e-mail address that is professional in nature if you wish to use it on your resume.
