How to handle interview + time off for funeral?
posted by House of Leaves of Grass to Work & Money (8 answers total)
I have an internal interview scheduled on Wednesday for a job I'd really like to get. One of the interviewers is my current direct supervisor. I'm prepped for the interview, my suit is pressed, I'm ready to nail it.
My grandfather died this afternoon, and in order to take time off for the wake later this week I'll need to clear it with my supervisor. This leaves me in kind of a quandry. Do I:
a) Put in for the time off tomorrow morning, running the risk of the interview being skewed in her eyes because of my grief?
b) Put in for the time off after the interview, running the risk of inconveniencing her with a shorter lead time and irritating her with non-disclosure of this event?
