Hi All,

My 1st round interview was unexpectdly moved from later this month to in a few days. I don't feel prepared as I should be for it. Is there anything I can do? I've reached out to HR to reschedule, but they've been slow to get back to me. What are my options?

Thanks,

I've called the HR recruiter twice and have yet to get a response. I'm afraid this could be due to differences in time zones.

Hi Anonymous,

as mentioned in the other comments, you can call HR and reschedule the interview at a different day. You can simply explain that the new appointed date won’t work for you.

Best,

Francesco

Hi,

Just reschedule it. They can't set a date without your confirmation. Don't worry
