When email first came out there were no style rules attached to how to choose or write an address line so people could remember you, and easily type out your email address. Early adopters of email communication chose descriptive names like shampoodiva@whatever.com. Later we were told to use a variation of our name. But one thing that seems to have stuck around through the years is writing out an email or web address all in lower case.

Email addresses are not case sensitive, so it makes sense to use CamelCase instead. Here’s why. What is easier to read, firstrateresumes@yahoo.com; or FirstRateResumes@yahoo.com? When writing your email address in the job search, use CamelCase and make it easier for recruiters to transpose it and get it right the first time they try to contact you. They will appreciate it.
