The job market is as competitive as ever. Don’t let a ratchet email address ruin your chances before you even get the interview!
Having a professional email address is essential in today’s job market. Believe it or not, far too many people submit their resume or application using an unprofessional email address, and this can have seriously unfortunate effects on a job search. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot before you get it in the door.

When asked about the “craziest thing he’d seen in 2019” he referenced a resume that included “TwerkQueen@XXXXXX.com” as the contact email address. According to Brown, this is not an unusual occurrence. Do better, y’all!
