Should I use my university email when emailing recruiters or is my personal email account sufficient? What if I don’t have a university email account?

Answered by Makailyn, Hiring Expert at Textron Inc., on April 16, 2018

I would recommend using whichever email you check more frequently! In my opinion, it doesn't matter if it's your email through school or personal, the important thing is that they can reach you. Make sure that your personal email is a professional address preferably containing your name. If your personal email is not professional or not the ideal address, then I would recommend using the email provided to you from your school. Finally, if you don't have a university email account the most important thing is that the recruiter can get in contact with you so I would not worry about it being connected to your university.
