This question already has an answer here:
So i had this interview on friday and I have work on that day. I plan to take a half day leave but the problem is I DONT KNOW WHAT REASON TO TELL MY MANAGER WHY I WILL HAVE TO TAKE A LEAVE! Of course I dont want to tell him that I have a job intervieW or he wont approve my leave. I read our policy and says if we ever have engagements or other interests on other companies withib office hours we are going to get suspended so I have to take a leave.
I have just started a week ago and this week would be my second week. I didnt like the job and I was dumb to accept it since it is my first job and didnt actually prepared for this. I hadnt have time to even think about it as the HR was rushing me. So I applied for another job that is in lined with my degree.
I need your professional advises as I have said I am very new on the corporate world and dont want to leave an ugly mark on my reputation.
FYI: Would like to make it clear that I don't want to resign just yet. I want to make sure that I am secured for the job that I want. I still of course would like to work first. I am just asking what possible reason do I tell him to approve my leave.
