Missing an Interview Apology Letter
Subject: Missing an Interview Apology Letter
Dear Mr. Jems S. Alvero,
I would like to apologize most sincerely for missing my interview today at 8 a.m. I attempted to call as soon as I realized I would not make the scheduled time, but I was only able to leave a message via voicemail. A freeway accident involving a semi-truck stopped traffic completely for 30 minutes on my way to your office, but that is no excuse.
I should have left my home even earlier to ensure I would arrive on time.
As a public relations firm, I understand that XYZ Public Relations Company values professionalism, which includes timeliness. Whether in a staff meeting or a client consultation, I understand that you would expect your employees to be punctual and to notify you ahead of time if they are delayed.
I currently am taking steps to ensure that I am not late for a meeting again. I plan to leave for meetings even earlier than I already do to ensure I am on time regardless of delays. I also will always check local traffic reports before planning my driving route.
I demonstrated a lack of professionalism today. However, I would like to request another opportunity to interview you for the position of communications assistant. I know that despite my embarrassing error, I am an ideal candidate for the position due to my extensive experience and my proven ability to achieve quantitative results for my clients.
I will follow up via phone to see if we can schedule a time to meet again. Again, I am very sorry for my actions. I look forward to meeting you and demonstrating to you why I am a strong candidate for the position.
