I am in the middle of a job search...putting feelers out. I hired a resume writer who shares the same name as a colleague. I mistakenly emailed my colleague (from my personal email account after work hours) information that was intended for the resume writer.
I am panicking. What is the proper response? The email contained:
- data about project growth under my leadership
- it also listed the job in which I was interested in applying with another organization
- a statement that I had experience working with the executive/colleague to whom the email was mistakenly sent.
Do I email my colleague and politely ask her to disregard the private, confidential email? Or do I ignore it in hopes that she doesn't share my job search?
