Just like that subject line.............I can't find a day for an interview. Just feeling bad if I call in sick....and will feel guilty if I do.

    If it's a priority and opportunity you want then you will make time...

    Same issue, I feel bad for saying "doctor appointment" or taking a half day off, but I don't think there's another way.

    Feel guilty? This is your future you are talking about. I wouldn't think about it twice. You gotta do what you gotta do.

    Sick day.
    Personal day.
    Long lunch.

    If I am looking I have already chose to leave this employer.

    I've even had some companies be willing to give me a late interview so I could just leave work a little early for personal matters.

    Lunch..come in late. If you really want to change jobs, you make time. Nothing to feel guilty about.
    Never let your fear decide your fate....

    If you don't want to take a sick day, then take unpaid timeoff. If they ask just say "personal matters". I day personal matters for everything because it's not any of my employers business what I'm doing. Plus, they can't ask for a doctor's note if you say personal matters.
