This past Friday, the heating in my house did not come on at night, and my whole family got sick. I was halfway through a technical test for a job interview.
I did the phone screening on Wednesday, and they issued the test later that evening. I started it on Thursday. Then I got sick and don't have the energy to finish it. The test is due on Monday.
I realize this is going to look suspicious. The recruiter would think that I'm just trying to get more time to complete the test. What should I tell the recruiter?
