Hi all, Another question about email addresses made me think of this... my brother's name is very common (first and last), and so when he was creating an email address for his resume, he used his name and then added a 4 digit number at the end. (I think they're just random numbers...it's not his birthday or a recent year). I've always heard that numbers shouldn't be included in professional email addresses, but when I asked if he'd tried periods, underscores, dashes, initials, etc. he said he had and they were already taken. Is there something else that he could use and still sound professional? Or do you think employers will understand the numbers with such a common name?
