Follow up call?

I missed a phone call for a potential job (2 weeks ago). My phone fell in the water and it took forever to receive my new one in the mail. I called back this morning and left a detail explanation and an apology.

Should I follow up to see if she got my message and maybe get a chance to talk to her personally. And if so what should I say?

She also gave me her cell number should I attempt calling or not even bother?

  • This is a tough one. In a job market like this, the position may be filled already, esp if you were not able to return her call previously. I would definitely call one more time to follow up, or maybe call the company and ask the HR department if the position has been filled.
    Sorry mama!

  • I would definitely call one more time. Use her cell phone, assume she did not get the last message. Apologize again and see what happens.
