Last week, I received a (nice) note from a job seeker looking for work. She asked me to look at her materials and inquired about my workshop.
I sent her a note back with some recommendations on her materials and answered her questions.
Then I got this bounce:
Thank you for your email. In order to maintain a balanced life, I only check this email a few times per week. If this is urgent, please call me.
People, if you are job hunting, do NOT have this kind of bounce on your job-seeking email account. I applaud good boundaries necessary for you to maintain a healthy life. But many employers use email as a primary method of communication and I would hate to think you missed an opportunity because you aren't checking email.
Best recommendation is for all you job seekers to have a special email address for job applications only. You can check that email daily and it won't take a lot of brain power to cull through a ton of junk.
'Nuff said. Enjoy the day.
