Dear Sir or Madam

⦿ Ask to change the interview date
I am writing in order to request the rescheduling of my job interview in your organization which is due on 6th June (next week). I had verbally agreed the date previously, but a situation has arisen suddenly which has left no option for me except requesting you to revise it to a later date.

⦿ Tell them why you need to move the interview time

Actually my father is a heart patient for a long time and recently he had a minor attack. The doctor advised the bypass surgery. Considering the deteriorating health condition of my father, I have decided to go for the surgery and coincidentally this has been scheduled on the same date by the hospital.

⦿ Explain that you are still interested in being interviewed for the job

I am of course very interested in the position and feel that I can offer my skills and experience to the role. I realize that it is not the most impressive start to my application to work with your company, but I cannot risk my father’s life which is most prior to everything else.

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience and I hope that we can reschedule.
Yours sincerely

Important Suggestion

  1. Unless you write the same letter and deliberately try to use the new CVG you have learnt, there is no use of attending these lectures.
  2. It is important for you to get it assessed by an expert to recognize your weak areas.
  3. Comparing your composition with the writing of the expert will also improve your writing skills.
  4. One lecture and one writing from your side are not enough. Target at least 50 input lectures and 50 writings by you for each task type.
