You make a request to move a conflicting interview by contacting the recruiter or interviewer as soon as possible. Explain that you are excited to participate in the interview, but that a conflict has arisen, and that you’d like the opportunity to reschedule for another date or time.
Ask the recruiter or interviewer for some other options that work, and indicate that you are flexible. Make sure you apologize for any inconvenience caused and reiterate your interest in the role.
Unless it’s a last-minute emergency, do not wait until the day of the interview to tell the recruiter or interviewer that you are not available. Your behavior in this situation sets the tone for all future interactions. All of your messages should be clear and professional. Make sure the reason you are rescheduling is valid. It is likely that the recruiter or interviewer will reply with some alternative options, and you will have your interview rescheduled for a different date or time. Be sure to thank the recruiter or interviewer for his or her understanding, and aim to work with the alternate dates and times they present.
