Your email address says more about you than you think

(Zack Whittaker, ZDNet) The email address you use shows more about you than you think. There is a psychology to everything, and using the 'wrong' email address could cost you an employment opportunity or more.

It sounds simple enough, but I do worry that many of my generation don’t quite see things from a prospective employer’s perspective. I can, in all honesty, because to me an email address guarantees somebody’s relationship with a company, and can be used to prove an identity on behalf of an organisation.

Email has not gone out of fashion with the younger generation. Devices such as the iPhone and the BlackBerry have brought email directly into the hands of already-digitised young adults. Social networking increases, but email has remained steady and will increase exponentially throughout their university timeline - and onto their careerpath.

And remember:
  1. It’s the first thing they see
  2. Your email can pre-determine the outcome
  3. Personal email accounts just look trashy
