Email – creating a dedicated account

We strongly recommend that you create a new account with a dedicated email address for your job search.

A new account will avoid clogging your personal email account inbox and enable you to quickly see and act upon job search emails. You will also use this for LinkedIn and other professional social media activities and agency/site registrations.

Both Microsoft and Google provide free email accounts that come with a free suite of applications and services that are ideal for your job search including:.

    • Email Account – @ Hotmail or Outlook (Microsoft), Gmail (Google)
    • Calendar with scheduling as part of the email application
    • Video calling – Microsoft Skype, Google Hangouts
    • Cloud storage – Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive
    • Online Office Suite – Microsoft Office 365 Online, Google GSuite

When choosing your account name you will need to create something unique that is professional and will help people to identify your correctly. This could include your name with initials, a suffix of your qualifications, professional memberships or job title.

Choose the provider you are most familiar with. If you have your own name domain registration you may prefer to use that to create a new email account if so still create a new Microsoft or Google account and using your own domain. Check with your domain host or search YouTube for instructions.
