No Funny Email Addresses - JobAustralia

A golden rule: please make sure that you don’t use any funny personal email addresses on your resume. If you have a slightly quirky email address, or one that could be misinterpreted, sign up for a new one. It’s all about looking professional and being taken seriously.

No-go emails include things like: smurf835@gmail.com crazy_girl@hotmail.com angel_in_the_skies@gmail.com hot-lady@gmail.com ladyinred@hotmail.com bigboy@gmail.com

You might have a perfect resume but still get rejected if your email address puts people off.
j.doe@gmail.com makes a much better impression than crazy-john@gmail.com

Take 5 minutes to register an email address that presents you as a professional. But don’t forget to check it regularly, especially if you have another email that you’re still using. Email forwarding is a really useful tool if you think you might forget to check a new inbox. It would be extremely frustrating to miss your invitation to interview!
