OP, treat it as a learning experience. You'll probably never make that mistake again.
Although it probably wouldn't get me anywhere, I'd send the employer a handwritten apology.
I'm thinking about your handwritten apology suggestion; it sounds like a good idea. And I know
I'll never make this mistake again. The funny (sad?) thing is, I've never been mixed up before on an interview date. Ever. It just had to happen that the one time I do mess up, I mess up with probably my most important interview ever. The universe is funny sometimes, I guess.
once went to an interview a day early. Still felt like an idiot.
LOL, well, that's actually kind of cute. Showing up a day early is better than not showing up at all because you thought it was supposed to be a week later than it actually was.
I just want to say, don't give up. I'm a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. We just don't know why at the moment, but we find out later in hindsight. You will get a summer job, and who knows what it might offer. Stay strong. And remember, too, that a lot of us are struggling along with you. Best wishes.
Thank you for your kindness and encouragement-- you're awesome. Best wishes to you as well.
I really don't know why this happened the way it did, but I also believe things happen for a reason, and maybe it was for the best even though I can't imagine why. We can't know what the future holds or why things fall out the way they do. I was thinking maybe that it happened for a reason, and happened for "the best," but not my
best, but for someone else's. Like I mentioned before, I've never messed up on what time and date an interview was in my entire life until this one. I just completely read and interpreted the email wrong. I just do not know why. But maybe that means, it was never meant
to be for me.
Just remember: "This too shall pass."
Very true. Thank you.
