No E-mail Address: In todayâ€™s technology-driven world, submission of a resume without an e-mail address is a surefire way to limit your chances of getting a response. In the past, most employers would contact candidates via phone or postal mail. But the likelihood of a company using snail mail to request an interview is slim to none. Due to the high response rate received for job openings, HR professionals find it more efficient to contact candidates via e-mail. So, be sure to include a professional e-mail address on your resume (ex. email@example.com) and check that account often. Remember to check your junk inbox regularly just in case you receive an unrecognized e-mail from a potential employer.
