Hello,

I am currently working in a full-time capacity, and I am looking to make a career change. In doing so, I have two interviews coming up. I'm not able to schedule them after work hours, so it will require me to take sick days. How do I do this without my employer getting on me? I tried to schedule them the same day, but no dice.

Does anyone have similar experience? What did you do as far as your current job goes?

Thanks so much!

Don't you have an option to take a LWOP day for personal business or some sort of trip? That may be your best option. You won't have to explain anything.
