I wish I had that sort of foresight, sadly when I was 19 all of my usernames were Hootie2485 no matter where I went or where I signed up...so I'm stuck with it on GMAIL. It hasn't really hindered me much, but it is kind of embarrassing on my resume.

Can you just not find anything close to your real name you could use? If you're actually using that on your resume...stop. I'd almost instantly pass on a resume with a name like that on it.

Damn man, it's not that hard to come up with something more professional. I know dozens of people who have been declined follow up interviews for something as small as a ****ed up email address.

well I landed the job I really, really wanted two months ago...so hopefully I'll never have to bust out my resume again...and now I have a corporate email as well

but yeah, perhaps if I ever have another go around I'll register a new email to handle all job inquiries...never really even thought about it

I was pretty new to the whole resume game this time around, really stumbled into a good career so hopefully I don't **** it up

If I had to post a resume today I would definately creat a new email strictly for that. It shouldn't matter, but it does like people have mentioned.

I'm not a Hootie & the Blowfish fan...it's basically my last name. I think people get confused, but perhaps since my name is on my resume my email makes a little more sense in case they wondered.

If it resembles your last name then I think you are fine and why you haven't had any issues thus far. Mine has nothing to do with my name, so I would change mine.

I setup an account a long time ago to distribute VPN clients to users that weren't on the corporate email platform of my previous employer.

Since I'm a network engineer, and that email address pretty obviously is for distribution of VPNs, I use it on my resume. I've also spent considerable time doing Internet forensics and abuse - I never use my real name for stuff like that.

No, that's silly.

Neither is more professional, or unprofessional, than the other.

They're the same. The domain suffix is all that is different. Hotmail IS Live.com. It's all been migrated to the same platform.

I'm shocked by te number of students who still use emails like "babygrrrl420@yahoo.com" as their official contact email. Of course, I'm also shocked at the number of teens who don't really use/check their email with any regularity.
