What does your voicemail message say about you?

As a follow on from my (slightly controversial) email address post, this post is all about your#voicemail!


Job Seekers - this one is especially for you.


Most people (approx. 8/10) have no idea what their phone's voicemail message says.


I'm not talking about your work phone, but your personal mobile phone. The one that potential hiring managers, recruiters, or HR staff will call you on to make an interview appointment. The number on the top of your resume.


If you are currently job seeking - please go right now and check your voicemail recorded message!

It shouldn't:

❌ be silent

❌ have lots of background noise (this is very common)

❌ be the standard message the phone company provides

❌ have your nickname

❌ be something funny (or trying to be!)


It should:

✅ be your own voice

✅ be clear and easy to understand

✅ be professional

✅ have at least your first name (if not both names)

✅ include clear instructions what the caller should do


Once you are in your new job, feel free to change it to anything you want, but whilst job searching, it's part of your professional brand.
