Ooops...and an application.
I just sent out an email submission for the Production Stage Manager role with Revision Theatre, for their summer '11 production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.
And "my bad"...
So I did a really boneheaded thing where my second phone interview is concerned, it's supposed to be today at 3pm (and actually, as I write this I don't know if that's east coast or west coast time - the company and job are in LA ... probably LA time ...).
Right, so the email response giving me the time of my interview also had a list of things I needed to send the Artistic Director prior to the interview. So I sat down, about an hour ago, to send that all off when I realized my "skimming" of the email meant I didn't really take it all in. Along with my resume they want a description of the class you'd teach - they had a description of what that means on their website. Well my initial reading of the email was too fast and so I don't have a class arc to send.
REMEDY - I hope ...
I've sent off an email, apologizing for not better reading the email, stating that I don't feel I've enough time to create the class overview by the interview time, and asking (and hoping/praying) that they'll allow me another interview time.
Obviously I apologized for my oversight, blamed myself entirely - since it is all my fault - and stated I would understand if it's not possible to get another interview time.
Sigh...sometimes the no's are my fault! Live and learn.
