I know this sounds strange but it's a real problem. I have been applying for full time, office type jobs and have been getting phone calls from various companies trying to arrange an interview with me. Some companies I have already gone in for a first round interview and they want me in for another.
I have taken a weeks worth of work at an auto show gig. The hours are very long (12 hours or longer) and we can't use our phones at work. The breaks are short and there's no quiet area to make a phone call.
I get off work at 10pm and can leave a voice message for prospective employers trying to contact me. I did this once but couldn't find the words and came across awkward. What do I actually say to explain this? The jobs I'm applying for are nothing to do with cars, so it sounds strange to leave the voice message "I am working at the auto show and can't return your call for the next week".
Is it even worth saying I can call them before 7am or after 10pm?
Some of the companies who left me voice messages did not provide an email address (or have been unresponsive to emails) so email is not an option.
