I’ve got a dilemna. I received a call today about a job I’d really love to have. The only problem is that the interview time is at 2pm on Friday. I told the person that I’d have to try and rearrange my schedule to make it and I’d call her back tomorrow to confirm (hope that already doesn’t leave a tiny tick against my name). My current job, which I don’t love at all but steadily pays the bills, doesn’t have any shifts that will allow me to make this interview (on top of being in the middle of the day, it’s a 2.5 hour drive from where I normally work so it’s not like I can just duck in or out or work an earlier or later shift, even if they were available).
I don’t think it’s the type of job where they’d give a phone interview so that’s out. I do have vacation days, but I have to give 2 weeks notice to use them so that is out. I do have 2 sick days left to my name until end of July when I’ll get more, but I’ve already used a lot this year and have to bring in a doctor’s note, which I can do since my ears have been hurting recently anyway and I want to get that looked in to. My only other option is to say my car has broken down and I am actually getting it serviced on Saturday so I’d be able to bring in a receipt on Tuesday for it (long weekend here so looks even worse taking the Friday off).
What do you all think? What would you do in this situation?
