What should I include in my email signature?
Answered by Ashley, Hiring Expert at Cardinal Health, on Monday, December 29, 2014
I would recommend including your full name along with your phone number and email address as a default. I have also seen students include their school and degree information in addition to any leadership positions held in student organizations or groups. This is a great way to point out any leadership roles or experience you currently hold.

That is an excellent question! Here are some examples below: Make sure to use your personal email address, not an email address associated with another job. Also make sure that your email address is professional. Do not have something like dragonqueen666@email.com . The first example is one for someone who has work experience and can list the title associated with their career. The second option is for someone who is about to graduate college. If you don’t have a profession that you are affiliated with and or want to keep it vague then take out that line and keep it straight forward to your contact information.

Just to piggy-back on the excellent responses given by other experts, I would recommend a couple of other small things related to this topic:

#1, Use an email address that is not tied to your university or college.

Some colleges and universities discontinue your email address after a certain amount of time has elapsed, post-graduation. You don’t want copies of your resume, or emails you have sent to employers (or networking contacts) to exist into perpetuity with a defunct address attached to them! Sometimes weeks (or months) after you’ve contacted someone, they suddenly they remember you, and have a job opening or know someone else who does. You want to make sure that these folks can get ahold of you easily, not just now, but also years from now. Additionally, it’s important to establish an email address that is professional and personalized very early on (e.g. firstnamelastname@gmail.com, or firstinitial.middleinitial.lastname@yahoo.com). You can even route your school email to the new box, so that all school-related messages will flow directly into this other (professional) box. In this way, you will only have one inbox to manage/check if you don’t want to keep track of two.

#2, Use a cell phone number that is yours alone, and know when and where to answer a call:

I’ve come across a number of new grads/early professionals who don’t have cell numbers listed on their signature line, or they list two telephone numbers, and one is for a parents’ home or for a roommate. I would list only one number, and make it your own. Try to avoid having recruiters or Hiring Managers call anyone but you directly, and leaving messages with a family member or friend. And be careful about when and where you pick up your cell phone! If you are in a crowded, noisy, or otherwise unprofessional environment, with potentially bad reception, let the call go to voicemail. Then head to a quieter place immediately, make sure you have a way to take notes, and call the person back as soon as you possibly can. It’s always better to have a polite and respectful conversation with a recruiter or Hiring Manager in a location where you can concentrate, take notes, and hear one another, versus a hurried and stressful conversation in a place where you can’t.

You should include your first name, last name, phone number, email address & your title or major if you are in college.
