Shit. What's the best way to cancel an interview

If there even is a good way? I was supposed to interview with a company today at 10:30 a.m. but a coworker just called and she can't work today so I HAVE to work. Now wtf do I do?

Well, there isn't a great way to cancel an interview, but of all the reasons yours stated above is honorable. Call the person and explain what happened. Depending on the type of person, (s)he may be willing to reschedule.

I'm sorry this happened to you. It sucks.

I would tell the truth. I would think any prospective employer would respect your work ethic. Instead of making up a reason that you couldn't get into work, you did what was best for your employer.

I agree. Just tell the truth and reschedule. I interview people all the time and I wouldn't hold that against anyone.

Click here to enlarge on the truth..except if the truth is something like "I'm hungover and puking my guts out every 5 minutes"
