Urgent advice needed -- can't get away for interview
I'm supposed to have a final-round interview for a lateral position in another city in a couple weeks and have already scheduled it, not thinking it'd be an issue to take a day off...but now my current group is making it an issue and I might not be able to make it out. Alternatively, it may be possible to schedule the final rounds on another day, but given all the holidays, I was told not everyone with whom I am supposed to be meeting will be in on that day (some sort of "optional' work day). Does anyone have any advice? It feels like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place here. Thanks!
