I personally find it slightly distasteful when someone uses their current employer’s email services to hunt for a new job, but there could be extenuating circumstances, so I’ll let it slide. A bit.
Here’s the thing people, there are literally hundreds, maybe even thousands of FREE email providers around the world. It takes all of 3 minutes to sign up for one of these accounts. I highly recommend when you set up your free email account that you use your actual name, or some variation of it (I know that the internet security gurus probably just screamed at me, but it hear me out). Think carefully about the account name you choose (if you don’t go with my name suggestion) because “shorty2fly”, “hotmama79″ or “Iheartshitzus” is not going to get you any further ahead in your career search.
Times are tough my friends, would you really want to find out the reason you didn’t get that job was that you wanted HR to reply to “mclovin69″, and they couldn’t stop laughing long enough to read your cover letter?
I didn’t think so.
