I've just been shortlisted for a job interview that is scheduled two days after my wife is due to give birth to our second child. The school is a four hour drive from where we live. It is really important to us that I am present for the birth. It would be fairly disastrous if I were to get a call from her and I were four hours' drive away and not able to be back in time. I'm really hoping that the baby will arrive early and I can travel down for the interview without worrying. But if the baby hasn't arrived by the time of the interview date then I face a real dilemma. Do I risk it and drive down to make the interview, or call the school and explain that the baby has not arrived and I do not feel comfortable traveling? I have been up front about the due date in all parts of this application, including when the interview was scheduled. If the baby is not here by the time of the interview my strategy would be to let the school know the day before and tell them that I would be available for interview via Skype or telephone at the times they have scheduled, and that I could provide videos of my lesson delivery. Would this have any chance of working? This job is to commence September 2016, so there is no hurry to fill the post. All views appreciated!
