Effective Email Addresses for Your Resume

While recently updating my contact list I noticed some less than professional email addresses and decided it is time for a quick email address reminder. As a professional, your email address should be recognizable as you, and reflect your professionalism. 

A good idea is to create a new address using Gmail using your first and last name. For example I would be either KrisPlantrich@gmail.com or KPlantrich@gmail.com.

It is professional, easy to identify who the email is from and gets your name in front of potential employers every time you use it. You can then use this email address for job seeking, professional communications any career management business. 

Keep your cute old email for personal communication if you want but keep professional during your job search.

Shine on!
