Anytown, CA 95555

Dear Ms. Brown:

Please accept my sincere apology for missing the interview I had with ABC Company, scheduled for Thursday, March 20 at 2:15 p.m. I had an unavoidable emergency that keep me from interviewing. Your company offers an invaluable opportunity, and I would appreciate any consideration you can give me in rescheduling my interview.

My internships with Look Public Relations and Real Marketing have provided me with the experience and qualification you are looking for in the Marketing Assistant position with ABC Company. This experience in combination with my Managerial Economics major make me a strong candidate  for this position.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to an opportunity to discuss my qualifications for the Marketing Assistant position offered by the ABC Company.
