Reschedule, you don’t want to have groggy medicine head or go into a coughing sneezing fit. Good luck!

Yeah reschedule. But give them a call so they can hear it in your voice. People would be a little more pissed that you came in and I texted the office than they would by you tending to your health

I would make a small joke in your reschedule note like “I don’t want to be spreading my germs as a first impression”.. just so it sounds sincere. Maybe I overthink too much but , just my 2cents 🙃.. feel better!!

Reschedule. Position as you’d feel terrible if you got anyone sick.

Feel better and reschedule! They would respect the fact you don’t want to get anyone sick.

Happened to me recently, couldn’t miss it. Powered through. But I probably came off as spacey and not too with it. Oh well.

What are your thoughts on making a company sign an NDA when asking you to do a case study for an interview? Really feel like these interview case studies are unfair towards applicants who spend time cracking their heads on original ideas that might be stolen, without a job offer.
