    Numbers that are included in an email address are not what HR is talking about when you hear about "unprofessional email addresses". I use two email address, one for professional/business purposes and one for when I need to register for shipping websites, etc. I don't have RN in my name at all because I don't want everyone to know I'm an RN, especially when I'm responding to sales on Craig's List, etc.

    Example of professional:

    suzysmith2012@gmail.com

    Example of Unprofessional:

    onehotmamma@gmail.com

    or

    mommyoftwokids@gmail.com
