How can I prevent a company’s emails from going to my spam/junk folder?

Many email providers have increasingly stringent spam filters that can trap legitimate emails. This often includes emails sent automatically, such as job application confirmations or company newsletters; it can also include emails sent to you personally, such as interview invitations.

If you notice that emails from companies you have connected with or applied to are going to your spam folder, you may need to adjust your spam filters.

The terminology and steps to take these actions will depend on your email provider, but the idea is generally the same: you need to find the email in your spam folder and indicate that either the message or its sender is not spam. (Please note that the email address you receive emails from is company-specific; please ask your point of contact within the company to find out what email address you should look for/whitelist, if possible.)

Links to some of the most common email providers’ help information regarding spam can be found below.
