A friend of mine asked me a simple question, do you use your college email address when applying to jobs?
I answered, “yea, why not?”
Why not? It may make you look inexperienced to future employers. If potential college students are advised to change up their email address from something such as firstname.lastname@example.org, you should change your job seeking email to something professional looking. Gmail accounts look professional enough and are free. While you may not want to part ways with your university email address, remember that small things turn off future employers.
What do you think?
