In this article Snagajob has highlighted something often overlooked by jobseekers when writing their CV. Updating your email address is easy to do, and can make you and your CV look more professional to prospective employers.

‘In today’s technological world your email address is in many cases your first impression. Having an inappropriate email address like hottiekisses@email.com or TruPlaya4Lfe@email.com is the same as showing up to a job interview in your pajamas, so unprofessional.

Here are a few best practices when it comes to your email address and your job search.

  • Keep it professional: Avoid email addresses with your nickname, pet’s name, hobby or any other personal info besides your name.
  •  Keep it simple: The best email addresses are simple and easy to understand. Avoid using numbers and symbols because these can be confusing since they look similar.
  • Keep it appropriate: If you’re having a hard time finding a suitable combination of your name, don’t give up because a professional email address can really help you land the job. Instead, expand your options to include your middle name, initial or a word related to the field you’re pursuing.’
