Feeling really rubbish

Hi everyone,
I suppose I need to vent a little.

I had a zoom interview yesterday which went horribly wrong due to audio issues and then me not being able to get back into the meeting room. I restarted the laptop and things were fine so It was then rearranged a couple hours later to finish off for which I was grateful but couldn’t join the room when I tried 5 minutes before my slot so i contacted them but no reply. I had done a couple of practice runs before which of course went smoothly so I’m really upset especially as my anxiety was through the roof in the run up (made much worse by lockdown isolation) I have left my old job after mat leave ended due to childcare issues and this one seemed perfect as I could pick my own hours even though the pay wasn’t great it suited me fine.

Anyway now I’m not sure what to do, do I just cut my losses and move on or should I contact them to ask if it will be rescheduled? I feel like it’s quite unfair as I’d never done a zoom interview and my worst fear was tech going wrong so I made sure to practise beforehand but I suppose it wasn’t meant to be. The interview seemed to be going well, I have a lot of experience but I know I waffled a lot as I was quite nervous. I feel quite miserable even though I feel it’s their loss for judging me on this but I need the job more and they have lots of applicants so I guess I should move on sad

I hate technology problems, I've had (like a lot of others) a few months of Zoom meetings and stuff and had to do a couple of interviews and I'm sorry this happened. You could easily contact the but I guess it was obvious to them that there were problems and it wouldn't hurt them to contact you. Maybe drop them an email after you've made sure things are working your end and ask to do it again and see what they say

I hope it goes well, do let me know

Hi Charlotte,
Thanks, the second time round they had to change the settings to let me back in but they didn’t reply to the email I sent to let them know I wasn’t being let in. I think I’ll wait until the end of the day and then ring or email on Monday morning if they haven’t been in contact. But then part of me doesn’t want to go through the anxiety again. Oh well x
