When you had a job, your company made you use one, right?  Your employer knew an email signature was a form of branding and it was good customer service! It made it easier for people to contact you and it made you look professional. So don’t tell me you aren’t using an email signature for your job search!

Personal Email Signature Benefits

If you haven’t set up your personal email signature block, you need to do that TODAY!  Why? Your email signature:

  • Makes you appear more professional
  • Helps make it easier for people to contact you
  • Showcases your professional image/reputation
  • Shows you have some amount of technical knowledge

What To Include

Jacob Share wrote a very helpful post on what to include and how to construct it.  You can find that post here.  This is the information he says should go in your email signature

Create a memorable email signature according to this formula.

Required elements are bolded, the rest are recommended where relevant:

Website/Social media profiles

Cool Tool

Now, if you really want to kick your signature up a notch, consider adding WiseStamp.   I downloaded the add-on and customized my signature in less than 5 minutes.  I think it looks more professional than the standard email signature.
