I didn’t think I would need to write about this, I thought by 2010 enough college recruiters and career advisors would have reiterated the need for professional e-mail address. Sadly, I was wrong.
Nothing screams unprofessional like an e-mail address of hottgurrrl69@e-mail .com or firstname.lastname@example.org. This website has examples and reasons why those examples are unprofessional.
Enough is enough! If you want people to consider you professional, not have to guess what your real identity is and take you seriously, please, change your e-mail handle!
