Thanks for the kudos. Much appreciated.

Your statement about it being painful to watch good candidates get caught in the net of avoidable errors is something I relate to. Working in this business, and seeing companies pass on great people for some of the smallest things can drive you batty.

However, I think there is something to learn there. Candidates take the job search process from a casual perspective. With computers and email, face to face contact is limited and therefore a person's guard can be down. What they need to understand, and all of us for that matter, is that when we press submit or send, that is for the most part all a potential employer will ever see of us. I think if people realized how important it was, that they would proof read and take the time to ensure there best foot was forward.

Being a resume writer, it is part of the process to proof the work several times before finalizing for a client. I instruct callers who decide to do their own work to proof at least two times: once for phrasing and flow, and again for spelling and grammar. It is two separate mindsets and should be done separately.

Helpful article and a very helpful site. We all need encouragement and to be positive in the job search. Here is another fairly new tool your readers may want to know about. A website called http://www.linkup.com can be another helpful tool for job searching today. Many employers are still hiring, but they don't post on the main job boards (which is where most of these other aggregate sites search) because they are getting inundated with resumes from tons of people that are not qualified. However, the company is still required to post the job--so they may just post it on their own company website. This website is a search engine that looks at company websites only. It's free and can be very helpful.

There is alot of pessimistic views out there having to do with career change and job hunting. I personally believe that an individual needs to keep their interviewing skills high when an opportunity presents itself. I found some good information on interview questions that really takes the edge off when your time has come.

The thing about the "professional e-mail" is simply indispensable. My friend has this strange and comic e-mail, and he keeps putting it on his resume... is there any hope for him? I don't think so.

Right on.

Adults with email addresses like "sk8pnk454@aol.com" need to step up the professionalism a notch. First and last name/initial is much better.

To take it a step further, MSN.com and YAHOO addresses are also out of style.

I’ve been browsing on-line far more than three hours these days, however I don’t ever discovered any appealing posting like your site. It’s fairly worth ample for me. For my part, if most of website house owners and folks produced nice content material as you do, the net will be much much more useful than ever before.

By experience, nothing gets you so not hired like an email address dubbed lotsalovin82@gmail.com. And the funny thing is, this often happens.

Sk8trgrrl85@aol.com isn't going to cut it... but I don't see anything wrong with johndoe@gmail.com

A lot of people in their rush to find employment forget to stop and consider all of the little things like you point out in your post.

Thanks for the info ole chap, really helpped me out.

When you get to the executive level in your career, you’d think that you know a thing or two about going for that ‘intimidating’ interview. Yet, you have to take a step back and remember that executives are the best at what they do, they’re not professional interviewees. We deal with top executives, headhunters and companies looking to recruit here in South Africa – and we offer them as much help as possible. Thanks for the referral to Jasons Blog!

Using a professional email address can be the first impression when the hiring manager looks at your resume. Please remember each and every letter in your resume can make a big difference.

Involved in the Staffing Services ad Staffing Solutions business, I found this to be very interesting and helpful. As a matter of fact, I rejected a candidate today for having an inappropriate email address.
