Just a thought that occurred to me this afternoon when referring people to different inquiries for UX work: how important is your email address to the image you present and your personal brand?
Personally I rate it pretty highly. I have a domain for personal email, and a different domain for freelance work, with my business name.
Lots of people give out a gmail.com, yahoo.com, or hotmail.com email address when they’re applying for jobs or freelance contracts. Does this make them look less professional in the client/hirer’s eyes? What do you think? What do you do?
