I was passing my resume to a friend so he could pass it along to his company. He was taking a look at it and gave me a list of things I should fix. This was one of them:
Get a Gmail or a custom domain like firstname.lastname@example.org or .pro. Yes we will filter out email by domain name.
However, I didn't think this was a problem. I use my e-mail which just contains my name (so nothing questionable), and it's a Hotmail account. Is it really necessary to change it? My email just follows this format:
I have been contacted by many companies with this same resume and email (Amazon, Microsoft, Palantir, Booz Allen, etc.). I have also been given a handful of offers in the past 2+ years. I really just wanted to confirm that either I was wrong in thinking my email is fine as it is or he's wrong (or his company's wrong) in thinking/working that way.
