FORMAL LETTER: UNABLE TO ATTEND AN INTERVIEW

Jan 12, 2020 / General / 10:41 am

You should spend around 20 minutes on this task.
You are unable to attend an interview which is scheduled by one of the multi-national companies. Write a letter to the concerned person. In your letter:
Explain the situation.
Ask apology.
Ask for any alternative option.

Write at least 150 words.

MODEL ANSWER:

Dear Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my concern regarding my absence for the interview you scheduled for the post Marketing Manager at your company.

I was very happy that I got shortlisted among the job aspirants for the aforementioned post at your prestigious company. It was my dream to work as a Marketing Manager in a renowned multi-national company and I thought I have already made it. Unfortunately, my family met with a car accident a couple of days ago and the condition of my wife and the first child is critical. As the interview is scheduled on the coming Monday, I find my physical presence at the venue almost impossible. I would like to ask you for any provision of an online interview the same day. I am sorry to have caused you any trouble and I trust you will understand the situation.

I look forward for a prompt response.

Yours faithfully,

Robert
