A friend of mine put in a good word for me at the tech company he works at, after I expressed interest in an internship there, and an internship recruiter for the company reached out to me by email asking when I can meet for an interview. This was a week ago.
Because I'm also a student (which is written on my resume, which the recruiter has) and this is finals time, I said I have very limited availability, and haven't received a response since. I'm worried I scared away the recruiter by implying that the company is low priority to me. To be clear, this is an internship that I'm very enthusiastic about, doing all the things I want to do and expanding my knowledge in all the areas I'd like to pursue. I accidentally implied that the internship isn't important to me, which couldn't be farther from the truth, and now I'm worried I've ruined the opportunity.
Can I fix this, and how?
