So to be clear, you’re fine Monday & Tuesday, and then all of a sudden fall sick Tuesday night to fly over to XYZ city and interview Wednesday? What if your team comes to check in on you? Just seems trickier to sell than usual ...

Reschedule the interview for a Friday. Duh

Gotcha, thanks everyone. And EY2, not that easy - they’re only having final rounds on a Wed or Thurs.

wondering if I’m incompetent or in a tough spot— basically one of my supervising attorneys recently left our small firm and their cases got passed down to me (im a 6 mo old atty) they did their best to bring me up to speed but ever since they left there’s some big issue popping up in every case (we cant reach a client, im not aware of a deadline, something minor wasn’t filed).
