Your email address says more about you than you think. We run down the top email domains and what they say to Recruiters:
- AOL – you will come off as old timer, not technically savvy and not too interested in keeping up with the web.
- Hotmail – outdated, probably in your 40’s or older, not especially savvy.
- Yahoo – Yahoo is notorious for getting caught in spam filters, did the recruiter even get your Resume?
- Gmail – Relevant with reliable email deliverability, this is your best choice!
Most likely an email isn’t going to make or break your Resume, but don’t fool yourself. It definitely leaves an impression.
