Transcript:Quick Tip: Email Accounts for a Job Search
Hi, my name is Brian Smith from About.com and today we're going over email accounts for a job search.
Choose an Email Server
One of the essential elements of a job search is having a professional email address. There are a variety of web based email services such as: Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and more. Choose one that you like and get ready to create your web address.
Use a Professional Email Account
When creating your email address choose a professional name. Cutiepie1999@server.com probably isn't the best choice. Stick to something simple, such as your first and last name. This will make it easier for people to remember who you are. Lastly, be sure to email yourself to make sure everything works correctly. You don't want all of your hard work going to waste.
