Missed Callback Phone Call

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 04, 2011 3:11 pm

I missed the phone call last tuesday where a firm offered me a callback. Didn't hear the message until today (there was no new message or missed call notification on my phone). Should I call the recruiter today and leave a voicemail apologizing for the delay. Call tomorrow morning? Just wait to call until Tuesday and explain then?

I think you should call right now and leave a message. Then call tuesday.

^ +1. You don't have to explain anything. Just say I got your call and I accept, over voicemail, and call back on Tuesday to confirm.

+1 on call now, but I would definitely apologize for the delay or explain. Otherwise, you seem like you don't care that much about the opportunity.

Apologize for the delay yes, but explaining IMO is never good.

"Sorry for the delay, I just got your message. I would absolutely love the opportunity to come interview at your office. The following days work for me. Thanks again."

Easy, stop worrying.

Usually all they tell you is a number to call and schedule, just call that number, no one will ever know.
