I’ve been actively job looking for the past month. Last week I had a healthcare corp dev interview. On Friday of last week, I received an email asking if I would be interested in a second interview that would have been scheduled to take place on Monday or Tuesday.
The issue is that I never saw it in my inbox until 4 days later for 2 reasons - 1) I’m doing double the work (very long hours on week days and weekends) because our sr. corp strat analyst is leaving us and has been training for his new role, and 2) it never showed up as an unread message in my inbox and I’m not sure why. Four days later (yesterday), I saw the email and apologized for a delayed response and explained there has been a real time crunch on my end due to quarter end and picking up slack for a position that recently became available. I recommended several times that I’d be available to talk; however, if those don’t work then I will essentially make any time they suggest work for me at this point.
Did I screw up? It has been a day and I haven’t heard back. For those of you who do interviews, what are your thoughts on this?
