Which email address would be better to use on a resume?
I have two email addresses and I'm not sure which would be best to use on a resume. Let's say my name is Sue Johnson.
My first email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
In other words, it would look like this: email@example.com
The other email is: firstname.lastname@example.org so it would look like: email@example.com
I've heard that gmail has more of a professional reputation but which email address do you think who be better on a resume?

It's usually better to stay away from email addresses that have numbers appended to the end of them; they almost always look unprofessional.
I don't think there is any merit to claims that one email domain is more professional looking than another, as long as you're with a big one. Live/Hotmail, Google, and Yahoo should all be fine.

mine is firstname.lastname@
I'd do the gmail one personally.
The first e-mail will be much more professional.
either one is fine. They're not going to base their decision on your email address.
Unless your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org like mine is.
Use the first email: firstname lastname @live.com.
Trust me, it seems much more professional, plus as it's not initials, it makes the employer find it easier to remember your name. Live > Gmail.

I'd choose the live one !
-doesn't have numbers in it
-easily understandable (whereas firstinitamiddleinitial isn't that transparent)
-commonly used (although firstname.lastname@... is alright too)
So yeah, email@example.com for me :)
Definately firstname.lastname@example.org, using initials in the address just seems very informal to me.
