I would probably call them and say something along the lines of, “I just received your email, and I would be very interested in interviewing with you.” I wouldn’t go into a spiel about how he hasn’t checked his email.

I would think calling would be the rest route. I can understand why you are irritated, though!

Agree with PP, keep it simple and don’t get into excuses for not checking his email all week. Hopefully they won’t ask.

May I ask why he doesn’t check his email daily? I feel that in this day and age, everyone should be checking their email daily! Even before I had a smart phone with data, I would have all my emails forwarded to my phone through text message.

He needs to learn his lesson and move on; there is fierce competition out there, and his actions have already shown the potential employer that he is just not that interested in the job (he may have all the interest in the world, but to them, he appears uninterested).

This actually happened to me a couple of weeks ago, when my manager was lining up interviews for a new person on our team. Many of the candidates were people we already knew, and one of the guys who was going to get an interview was someone we knew would have been a great fit— smart, hard working, great skill set, personable, everything. But he didn’t reply to the email about the interview, and when he surfaced a little while later, my boss asked “should we add him back to the list?” And our entire team said, why bother?
