That is a huge bummer.  I wouldn’t beat yourself up about it, since that ship has sailed.  We’ve all done stuff like this.  If you really want the job you can try to get another chance, or just cut ties & move on.

It’s OK, give yourself some time to vent and beat yourself up (only a little) and then if there is a way to fix it she’ll contact you. Mistakes happen–BIG HUGS!

Mistakes happen.  Hopefully you will get another chance and blow them away! You never know.

My mom likes to tell the story of one of her jobs that her car broke down, she was rained on and covered in mud when she arrived to the interivew late and dirty. She thought she had lost the chance but went through with it. Because she thought she didnt have a chance, she was relaxed. The offered her the job that night!

You never know… just make sure you email them and explain the confusion.

I missed my interview due to terrible directions and called about 10 minutes after my interview was to start. The front desk told me the boss had left for the day… I felt so bad. I came in the next day and she said I had the job she just wanted me to come in for a tour to make sure I liked the place… lol. I worked there for 5 years. 

This last job interview I went to I thought I was going to be late thanks to a train but I made it 5 minutes early and didn’t get the job. =/ 

Sometimes things happen but people understand. Good luck!

I have a friend who showed up late for an interview. He got stuck in traffic and didn’t have his cell phone. When he showed up 1 hour late, the receptionist said “Mr. Jones, your interview was yesterday”. So not only was he late, but he showed up on the wrong day!

He rescheduled, showed up at the correct day and time, and got the job!!

I had a screw-up with a phone interview once.  I was in TX and the interviewer was in New Jersey.  We set up an interview time for 10am but I didn’t even think about the fact that there is a time change between our locations so that would be 9am my time.

I missed her phone call but saw her voicemail about 20 minutes later and called her back.  She completely understood and rescheduled for later that day.  I made it to the next round too but didn’t end up ultimately getting the job (although I don’t think the screw up with the phone interview had ANYTHING to do with it).

It is 3:30pm now, so I hope you are on the phone with her as I type this! Sounds like a very understanding place, so I hope it works out! Update us, please.

That sucks! That’s a recurring nightmare of mine! In fact, I had an interview today and set so many alarms so I could make it in time.

Good luck! I hope you get the job!
