Resume Email Address Tip

Résumés Plus Online

A resume is a tool to showcase the professional you!  Not the you that hangs out on weekends with your friends at the clubs.  When seeking a new position you should do your best to ensure everything about you is as professional as can be. 

This includes your email address!

When a recruiter is looking at an emailed resume, do you think they will respond the same to an email from BoysNiteOut@email.com or to BobsName@email.com?

I am pretty sure the recruiter will pick Bob’s over BoysNiteOut, unless the recruiter is perhaps single and looking for a fun boyfriend!  We both know the likely ending to this scenario.

So now might be the time to create a new professional email address if you don’t already have one.  Then update your resume with it! 

If you need some assistance in this effort, contact a resume writing professional that offers free consultations and ask for their opinion or assistance.

Best of luck in your search efforts and remember…..Resume’s Plus Online is always available to assist you.

Resume Writing Tip

Do you know the average amount of time a professional reviews a resume before deciding if it should go in the pile for further review or the “not interested” pile?

The reality is it takes approx. 10-15 seconds only!! Yes, that is correct.

So what is the most important part of the resume? The top 1/3 of the first page. It must grab the readers attention or risk getting tossed in the wrong pile.

Don’t risk letting that happen to you. Pump up the top of your resume or consult with a Professional Resume Writer for assistance.

The whole point of a resume is to get you noticed, to get you in the door for an interview and that’s it. So keep it fresh, keep it professional and make the beginning pop!
