I was supposed to get a call at 4:30 today for a teaching job. She still hasn’t called 🙁 I emailed her around 5:10 but still haven’t heard back. It was going to be my first interview and I stayed up pretty much the last two night practicing and prepping. I feel like I’m going to throw up.
What should I do next? I was thinking of trying to call the school tomorrow. Also, maybe email her more about me- like a series of questions and answers she might have asked…

I would not say anything….see if she e-mails you back. Probably something came up or she has the day wrong…if you haven’t heard from her by mid-day tomorrow, I’d call her directly. But that’s it. The e-mail you’ve already sent and one follow-up phone call.

@Miss Orchard: Agree. If you send much more than that, you may appear pushy, or you might highlight that person’s mistake in overlooking the scheduling. Such a person may be sensitive to being “called out,” you know? Just play it breezy, and stick with the follow up email and phone call. She’ll get one or the other.
I’d keep my resume on the market too, just in case. Just proceed as normal.

@Miss Orchard: Agreed. And don’t send her interview-type questions/answers either.

Did you ever get a call or follow up email?

I would wait until she emails you back, or if there’s a lag I would follow up with a phone call early next week to ask about the status of your application. I definitely would not send her your interview answers.
Even though it was unprofessional of them to blow you off, maybe there was an emergency or unforeseen circumstance or some kind of scheduling misunderstanding. Keep looking for jobs as if you have no leads. Good luck! Hope you hear back soon!
