So I’ve got an interview Friday with a job that seems like the perfect fit. My current work situation has become increasingly toxic and has forced me to seek new opportunities. That being said, I am still very fearful of burning bridges with this company’s management.
I have already been approved to go to a medical examination on Friday, however, by telling him the kind of procedure I thought of, he looked it up and saw that it would only take an hour. Nevertheless, my interview is in another city and I would need the entire second half of the day off.
To further complicate things, my boss was out for part of the day because HIS boss just had a death in the family last night.
I have a note from my therapist that I could use to take “personal time” whenever I need since I suffer anxiety and depression, however, I still don’t know if my employer would buy it since he’s already suspicious after my medical study.
Is there any potential drawback in taking the whole day off? I’m considering just playing hooky Friday afternoon but I feel that could end miserably..
