strip#21 the callback

Don’t give away more than you should.

Well…that was awkward. You really should always check that you did hang up that phone before going into a rant or having a personal meltdown moment.

But hey, we all know that it so easy to reveal a bit too much to an HR person, both on the phone or in person. 

Such mishaps can happen any time.

So how do you save the face when you’ve left a kinda terrible voice message?

You have several options:

  • Give them another call and try to reach the person this time.
  • If they acknowledge the situation, apologize briefly.
  • If not, keep it cool and continue as if nothing happened.

It’s never the end of the world.
