First of all – congrats! On to your dilemma: Is there any way you can do a phone interview (assuming they are in person)? I think this would show them you are really dedicated and interested in getting a job if you’re willing to do this during your honeymoon.

If the interviews run until the day after you get back, I am sure you can get yours rescheduled.

Employers are human too(well at least some of them, sometimes) and they will understand about a honeymoon that is already scheduled.

Who were you talking when you called? A clerical staff person?

Call back and ask to speak to someone in HR or whomever is in charge of the interview process. Explain your scheduling conflict. I am sure they will undertsand.

There was a total communication breakdown on the employer’s part when I was applying for my current job. I ended up speaking to the Director of HR at 5 pm on the last day of interviews. I offered to come out right then and there, had the interview  and I was hired. They told me if I could interview on short notice and with that level of stress, I deserved the job.

This seems like a chance that won’t come up often, do you have travelers insurance?

I would reschedule the honeymoon if I were you.

What a wonderful day to get married! Would they be willing to schedule the interview for the day you get back then? FI got a job offer and was supposed to start while we were on our honeymoon.. he called them and talked to them and now gets to start the day after.. hopefully if you talk to them they can do the same thing?

I wouldn’t worry about not being able to call from the cruise ships. They always have phones and internet on board, and actually my cell has usually worked. You might have to pay hefty roaming charges but it’s definitely worth it if that’s the only way.
