hi ladies, i got a call about a job i applyed for and well i have an interview on monday. The problem is i put an application in for a vet assistant and they want to give me an interview. I was so caught up in the moment that when i got off the phone with them i realized that i applyed for the vet assistant and they didnt mention that position. I called them back to doublecheck and they were out for the day. I was going to tell them that i thought i applied for the vet assistant and if i can still apply for that. I am so confused right now on what to do. I am out of a job in September and that is when i am getting married. The pay is 7.50 an hour for the kennel assistant but there is no set number of hours. If i work 20 hours with the the kennel assistant i would be making the same i did at my other job. I guess i am going to have to ask them at the interview if i can interview for the vet assistant?? I dont know if i should interview for both or what… The other problem is the kennel assistant you have to work weekends that isnt the problem the problem is the wedding and then my honeymoon that i can not reschedule. I dont know ifi should tell them i can getting married in the interview or wait until after if they hire me. Im worried if i do them before then i wont get the job or if i wait until “if” i get the job then they will fire me or wont let me take it off. I do really need another job but ahh i am so confused!

First, you dont need to tell them you are getting married in the interview, thats not what they should be basing their judgement on. I would take the internview anyways, you said they didnt mention the vet assistant position, but they also didnt NOT mention it. Go in and talk to them and see what it is for. If you get hired, then you can tell them about your wedding and vacation time that is needed. Keep in mind that you probably wont be eligible for time off so you would have to take an unpaid leave.

It is illegal for an interviewer to ask if you are engaged, married, or thinking about having children.

I think I followed you correctly. You applied for a position and they contacted you about another? if the kennel position and the vet position are with the same company express that you have interest in either and would be happy to interview for both. They may have different hiring managers though, so you may have to do two interview processes.
You don’t need to tell them you are engaged. If they ask aabout your availability (which is usually toward the end of the hiring process) you can say that you are getting married and will be able to start at whichever date following.

I don’t think you need to mention your wedding plans. That shouldn’t affect their evaluation of you as an employee. Also, I agree with what the other Bees have said– just ask for clarification in the interview about what position you are inerviewing for. Maybe if you got hired for the kennel assistant, then that could be your foot in the door for the vet assistant job? Good luck, let us know how it goes!

just be careful about not telling them you will need days off
If they ask if you are going to need days off soon: tell them, because some jobs won’t allow you to take vacation, days off, or PTO till 60 days in. If they aren’t told in the beginning, they might not give you the weekend/weeks off that is needed. It also might affect your training. Some jobs make it mandatory for you to be at training and if you have to miss, you get booted back or out.
They shouldn’t allow if you need days off be a reason why they wouldn’t hire you–it didn’t for me. I got hired for a full time job but wanted part time for the school year and my job is working with me to make that happen even though I’m not 60 days into it. They are also working with me to give me three days off so I can move because I was upfront about it. But, a different employee didn’t tell them she needed a weekend off to be in a wedding and she had to call out and got written up :(.
Even if you aren’t considered for the vet assistant, I would get my foot in the door so to say because it’s easier for them to promote you than trying to find someone new that may or may not work out. Plus, it would atleast be some money coming in for y’all…

apply for the more expensive job, dont mention you will get married or they will not hire you
you cn ask for time off later and prove yourself
you tell them now you can kiss the job goodbye
