Sample Apology Email to an Employer for Missing an Interview

Dear Mr. James,

I would like to apologize for not making it for the interview on Thursday, March 24th at 11 a.m. On my way to your office, an accident had taken place because of which there was a traffic jam which lasted for almost an hour, but this is no excuse as I should have left my home earlier to make sure that I reach your office on time. I also tried reaching your office through phone but due to some network problems, I could not make a call.

I completely understand that every company desires responsible and punctual employees which are a reflection of professionalism. I know I have disappointed you with my lack of professionalism on Thursday but I request a last chance to interview with your for the profile of Marketing Manager at ABC Corporation Pvt. Ltd. I strongly believe that I am the right choice for this profile because of my rich experience in the field of marketing and my capability to meet the targets with greatest effectiveness.

I will ensure that this time I reach for the interview on time without any fail. I will make sure that I don’t give you any chance to get disappointed. I will take all steps to leave no room for any delays.

I will call you later this week to know if we can have an interview scheduled again. I would like to apologize again for my actions.

Looking forward to meet you and demonstrate you why I am the right choice for this profile.

Thanking you

Sincerely,

Albert Gibbs
