As surprising as it seems in the 21st century, some job candidates don’t have an email address on their resume. If you don’t have email, get an account and keep the email address simple: your name is your best choice if it is available. If you use your name in a shortened form, be certain it isn’t inadvertently offensive.
If you have an email address that is not your name, make certain it conveys an appropriate image. It is doesn’t, create a new one and use the new one exclusively for your job search.
Monitor your email for communication from recruiters and human resources. While you may prefer telephone calls, you want to keep in mind that for various reasons, email may be more convenient. For instance, if you can only communicate after hours, people can still send you information during the work day via email. Lastly, check your spam trap or junk files regularly so you don’t miss an email from a recruiter you’d like to do business with or from a potential new job.
