Everybody (almost) realizes that having an email address like "SpringBreak2005@hotmail.com" or "john.smith@beer.com" on your resume isn't the smartest idea.

Well, here's an even dumber one: an address that doesn't work.

Sound crazy? We were doing some data mining the other day and found that a surprisingly large percentage of applicants that come in through our clients' systems have an email address that bounces. Hopefully they managed to put down a working phone number at least.
