It’s hard enough getting the right job. So we shouldn’t have unintended glitches impede our efforts.
Consider this observation from Careerealism.com: “Have you been checking your spam filter? Many of us don’t. We take for granted that the filter’s working correctly — protecting you from unwanted E-mail and leaving your Inbox filled with messages that you want to see. We all know that sometimes your spam filter mistakes spam for legitimate E-mails and allows them into your Inbox. But do you also know that sometimes your spam filter mistakes legitimate E-mails for spam, and filters them out of your Inbox? This can hurt your job search efforts.”

This has been a very real problem for me! I found that for one of the sports teams I am on, emails from the coach have been going into my spam for the entire semester. It was incredibly frustrating in terms of communication and scheduling. I was not understanding why I was not receiving emails and reconfirmed my email address with him multiple times. Once I went into my SPAM folder I found a multitude of other important emails which I had missed since I assumed my spam folder was always working!
