I feel I'm doing something wrong when hunting for jobs, but I can never figure what it is. Maybe the email I'm using, but my website is also on the CVs that shows why the email is using the name it is, so it shouldn't be a problem, right? [That's exactly the problem, isn't it?]

You should use a generic firstname lastname email. Sorry to say it but it's just how it is

Yeah, I've heard it plenty of times before, but I just don't think I ever got into the idea of doing it. When my job search drive starts up again, I'll definitely have the right email for it. I'm still keeping my website on there, though. If I'm applying for jobs that require experience in writing, I want to at least show something.

Who'd have thought custard wouldn't go down a drain too well

Presuming it's from a powdered mix - boiling water will break it back down into a runny liquid.

He needs the help of a good mother/father.

Also, you're gonna need to keep it moist. Otherwise it'll crust up and you'll be completely strawberry floated.

pretty sure I got most of it out, but strawberry float knows how much went down the drain
i just wish the dudes who did it had the same thought process

So anyway how are you guys

I didn't get an interview.

strawberry float this strawberry floating gooseberry fool.

Edit- Oh, and here's a fun tidbit. The position I applied for? Clearly wasn't filled, because the exact same job posting is back up on their website with a new deadline. Because why humour this dipshit when we can just try again.

Your email isn't something like ihateallemployers@gmail.com is it?

But seriously, just make a new email for business crap if you're that concerned. Either commit to who you are with your email or make emails specific to what you're going for. It's free and easy to make more than one email. I've had like 8 email accounts over my life.

Nah. That'd be a one-way ticket to being blacklisted everywhere.

I was told to get a basic name-only one when I first started the job hunt, but that never seemed to work, which is why I went with the route I did. I'm still committed to my current way of doing things, since it's a better way of showing who I am.

You will have plenty of opportunities to demonstrate more of your personality and strengths when writing a cover letter or in an interview. An email address comes before that, at the basic assessment of whether you appear professional enough in your application to even be worth considering. I'd recommend again that you play it safe with a simple name-only email address. If you weren't having success before, I highly highly doubt it was because you had a generic email address, but I can believe that you might have been filtered out on other applications because of an email address that appears unprofessional.

It's barely any effort on your part and you shouldn't feel like it's giving any concession to your own personality or anything!
