This never gets old!
Reasons I have been given recently for not showing up for the interview:
1. Family Emergency – didn’t you get my message?
When you have a family emergency, you should do Everything you can do get in touch with the company to let them know you are not able to attend. Don’t send a wimpy email a few hours before – CALL ahead, email, text, make sure you get a live person to update.
2. I got lost and couldn’t find the location
Internet – use it to check location before you go
Try Calling the main phone line to ask for directions
3. The Fully MIA – no show – no call – no response – no reason
Make sure you don’t mistakenly apply for that job again.
It’s bad Karma to just not show up on an interview, pulling a no show. It’s not professional and you can be sure the Human Resources person will remember your profile down the road if you do re-apply.
