I had an interview today!

Has anybody had a cold/cough and had to have an interview?
I really hope that it doesnt' count against me, it's within the company, but I've been hacking all day really sick ;o(

  • I'm so sorry you are feeling sick! I don't think I've experienced that yet- but considering that you already work for that company I don't think they are going to count that against you. They'll probably look at your past performance instead.

  • If it's a small company and they know you, shouldn't hurt. It might help for them to see you don't stay home from work for small things. Then again, they might think you SHOULD have stayed home to protect other employees. I personally never worked for a place that felt that way, they wanted you there unless you were in the hospital or morgue.

  • what crappy timing lol ! I'm glad you didnt cancel the interview though! Stay hydated with water and drink herbal tea, rest and take it easy during the day, cough drops help ease itchy throats and coughs! chicken noodle soup is a great cure too
