How Using A Blackberry Might Prevent You From Getting A Job. by rationalmind(m): 6:51am On Jul 31, 2015
Ever since my university days, I had always been a fan of blackberry. What I recently found out about my beloved blackberry surprised me and has since left a bitter taste in my mouth.

I have recently applied for a host of jobs, getting invited for tests in some and never getting an invite in some. In my quest to know why I haven't been invited to write some tests, I started seeing a pattern.

Anytime I apply to jobs using recruitment portals such as taleo, I always get shortlisted. Anytime I apply for a job by sending my CV to a mail address, I never get an invite for a test.

I decided to do a little experiment. I opened a yahoo mail account and sent a mail from my BlackBerry HUB to the yahoo mail and it ended up in spam. I tried the same using mail addresses of people I had never exchanged mails with and all the mails ended up in their spam folder.

The problem I later got to find out is a bug that comes with BB10 devices. Using the blackberry HUB to send mails will most likely end your mail in the junk folder.

I decided to open this thread to enlighten other job seekers who unknowingly have been victims of their own phone.

Attached are screenshots of people's experiences I got off the web.

My major regret is why it took me so long to figure out. I have lots of jobs I've applied to already using that medium.

@OP, it's not a general Blackberry problem. It only occurs in those with dual OS (Blackberry-Android) like Q10, Z10, Z30 and d likes.
I send my mails with my Bold5 and it goes straight to the recipient's inbox. Just tried it now with my other email address and it went peacefully.

I send emails daily from my Z10 and get instant replies. I got my latest job via email I sent. I don't really know what you are saying here o. Maybe some of these BlackBerry 10 devices have been tampered with or something but my own Z10 works perfectly and delivers emails into inbox not spam folders.

I'm very sure you didn't send those mails from your hub.

Just to confirm what you said, Can you please send a mail using your blackberry hub to engrlandlord@yahoo.com.

Z10 is very complicated. Check some settings.

Could be a bug from a specific os version

Since my relationship with bb10 plus my efforts
to update my os to latest version
I have never experienced such tongue
