When you are using email to job search or network, it's important to include a professional email signature with all your contact information, so it's easy for hiring managers and recruiters to get in touch with you.

Include your full name, your email address, and your phone number in your email signature, so the hiring manager can see, at a glance, how to contact you.

Including a link to your LinkedIn profile is a good way to give the hiring manager more information on your skills and abilities.

If you're using Twitter for job search and/or career related purposes, include a link to your Twitter account, as well.
