Nothing wrong with it. I throw one on there. In this day and age email is as viable a communication tool as a telephone is.

Yes, many folks want it e-mailed to them in the first place.

If you are living in the 21st century then you should, otherwise just forget it.

On your Resume (or CV if you so call it) - do not indicate -
- your mailing address -
- your phone number -
- your fax number -
- your email number -
- maybe even your name -
- or the position you apply for -
- be totally stupid, like a vast majority nowadays -
... so people cannot reach you... withold everything, dear dummy...
What a question was that...?

But be careful on what email address you use. You wouldn't want some like HotGuy27@AOL.com or something silly like that.

Actually the position you are applying for should be on the cover letter, not on the resume.

Different documents but they go together.

And to answer the original quesiton, yes put it on there.

It is a means to contact you. If they can get a hold of you they will move on to someone else.

SPEED: Set up a dedicated e-mail on something like Hotmail or MSN. Don't go for all the bells and whistles, just the basic package and it's FREE. I did that along with my roommate and we both had excellent results. You have to keep it cleaned up, but you have the ability to receive attachments like applications, etc. Best of luck on your job search. Big grin

Iflyatldl,

Hey thanks. I just picked up a hotmail address because I couldn't get my normal yahoo address to work with Outlook for some odd reason. And my email address is now on the top of my resume. I think I'm gradually going to phase out my yahoo address, or maybe leave it for junk mail.

most certainly you should put an email address on your Resume. Just as long as its not something like iassbangedkroc@hotmail.com. So far I have had 3 classes that all were determined to teach me how the "real world" wants resumes to look and the only point they all agreed upon was having an email address on it.

Of course, put as many contact possibilities as you can in your CV. And, as Startvalve already mentioned, it should be a "normal" eMail address (for example:firstname.lastname@provider.com).

Working in a HR depatment I think I'm able to answer this one, leave it on most definitely, we use email to contact applicants *very* often. To send you a letter costs 28p or whatever, probably 5-10p a minute to ring you and absolutely nothing to send you an email, we love sending emails (even if just to say you haven't got the job, especially those ones actually...)

I've conducted my entire jobhunt last year through email alone (minus a single application to Eurocontrol who insisted on a printed out application form with photograph mailed internationally).

Sending an application through email without an email address seems kinda silly  Smile
