Dear Ms. Adams:
I'm sorry for not attending an interview scheduled for April 11 at 10.30 am in your company. My sister met with an accident yesterday morning and I had to rush to the hospital. My parents had gone to a business trip and came last night. I had to be with her for the entire day as she was all alone in the hospital. Your company is a leader in pharmaceutical sector. Working with you is a dream job for many young students. I would like to know if you can reschedule my interview.
I have completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing. I have an internship experience of working with Glen Mark Pharmaceuticals. My educational qualification and internship experience fit in the eligibility criteria that you had advertised for the position of Marketing Assistant in your organization. I have also worked as an intern with marketing research firm as I have completed my degree with Statistics as a major.
I hope you will consider my sincere apologies and give me an opportunity to meet you once regarding the position of Marketing Assistant. With this letter, I am enclosing my resume for your perusal. I look forward for a positive reply from you.
