First Step: Get an Email Address

The first thing to do before any job search is to set up an email account.  Employers often ask you to email your resume or a job application.  Be one step ahead and have it ready to go.  

Many sites offer free email services.  Simply create an account by filling out the website form.

While the registration form can be somewhat intimidating, it only needs to be completed once.

Often times the desired username (the portion of the email address before the ‘@’ symbol) is already taken.  Get creative or pick one of the suggestions. 

Stuck? Try using your initials, middle name, a nickname (keep it professional), numbers or symbols

Make sure you note important details like your new email address and password so you are able to check your email in the future.
