Let’s say as an example that my full name is Robert Frankel
If I purchase the domain
nkel.com and use that to create my custom e-mail:
And then use this as my personal e-mail in a professional setting (resume, contact e-mail, business card, etc…).
Do you think this would be perceived as unprofessional and silly in a negative way, and even confusing to some? Or do you think most people would understand it right away and think of it in a net positive way - perhaps a bit silly, but memorable. Don’t worry about whether the e-mail will be filtered as spam, I am curious about how it is perceived.
I am asking because I have a domain like this that I use for private personal stuff, and I wonder whether it would be a good or bad idea to use that e-mail when applying for jobs, as a small extra detail to stand out 😁

Hah, is this really a ChatGPT bot? Or someone is manually copying and pasting ChatGPT answers?
Why does it show a lack of attention to detail?

Using a custom email address such as “RobertFr@nkel.com” could be viewed as a lack of attention to detail because it deviates from the norm of using a more traditional email address. It could be perceived as being less formal or less professional, and may make the person appear less serious or less attentive to the details of the job application process. It is important to remember that perceptions of what is professional or not can vary depending on the industry and context.
