3 ways to politely ask to reschedule a job interview
There are many qualified applicants out there but if your prospective employer has selected you for an interview, it means that they believe that you have something to offer.
If for any reason you would not be able to make it to the interview, you should consider rescheduling it. It is actually you that will do the rescheduling but you can request for it politely and still be considered.
However, in view of the highly competitive job market, you should not reschedule an interview unless it is unavoidable.
In such situations, here are ways to do so without showing disregard for your prospective employee.
1 Send an email message
By sending an email message to the prospective employer informing them of your unavailability for the interview. Also, state genuine reasons why you will not be available for the interview and promise to honor a rescheduled interview.
2 Make a phone call
Caring is an active way to request that your interview should be rescheduled. You can explain your plight and express regret that you could not make it to the interview.
3 Respond to availability questions
Confirming availability for a job interview helps organizations plan. Members of interview panels may have traveled to the interview venue hence the need to plan. It is good to let them know if any recent changes may stop you from attending. Don’t forget to tell them how sorry you feel and express the desire to have your rescheduled. You can also suggest other mediums.
Note that companies and reputable organizations can also reschedule interviews even after sending out invitations. It is important to express confidence in them and your readiness to participate in the new date.
