An AOL reader asks, "Would it be appropriate to include your business/work e-mail on your resume?"

Absolutely not. This gives the impression that you are conducting your job search on your current company's time. Employers may wonder if you will do the same thing to them one day. Create a professional e-mail address using some combination of your first and last name and stick with that. Save the business e-mail address for your current company contacts.
