Your email alone says a lot about you!
There have been tons of articles written by people in the Talent Attraction industry on this topic.
If you have a Hotmail or AOL email for example, people tend to think of you as less technically savvy unconsciously, since you are using a platform that is considered dated by most people.
Also avoid cuties email addresses on your resume that make a reference to sports teams, your partner, your pet, etc. For the job search you want something professional like your first and last name.
While the email address doesn’t really give the recruiter or hiring manager insight into your skill, it could lead to bias based on a myriad of things.
Another example is your age. I see a lot of resumes like Kimberlytate1973@gmail.com. First of all, it is never a good idea to use personal information like your birth year for security reasons. Secondly, it can lead to age bias, where the recruiter or hiring manager could unconsciously perceive you as too young or old.
Finding a new job and writing the perfect resume can be scary. The good news is that you don’t have to do this alone.
Wouldn’t it feel amazing to have a high level of confidence in your resume, your LinkedIn profile, and your ability to maximize a job search?
I work with clients virtually all over the country. We would pick a time that works for you.
We can do a one hour consultation to talk through options and strategy.
Interested? Send me a message with your current resume on LinkedIn or reach out to me by email to email@example.com and I’ll share my thoughts on your resume, give you an overview of pricing and walk you through next steps.
