Have you ever sent an email in your job search, or at any time, and never heard back from the addressee?
Did you assume they received it, and didn’t have time to respond, or didn’t want to, or just decided to ignore you? Did you find yourself getting angry that they didn’t have the courtesy to respond?
Maybe your email never reached its destination. Maybe the addressee never even knew you tried to reach them.
It happens more than you may think. It’s happened to me many times, when I’ve been the sender and the receiver. Nothing was in anyone’s spam filter. The email was just gone.
