Interview is Monday but I have a sore throat, cough, fever like symptoms

I'm taking meds and stuff but I have to fly (and probably get more sick) and then interview.

Where I probably won't be at my peak

However flight and hotel have been booked, as well as the interview obviously.

Would you go through with it?

Especially since it's amazon where LP and behavioral conversation is huge.

Should I tell them that I'm sick?

    You should delay your interview. Its better for everyone if you perform at your best

      Completely agree. I had a candidate who came with concussion and I saw that something is wrong. When he told me we rescheduled and although he didn't meet the bar, he was really happy. If the company is worth it, they will understand.

      Get well.

    It's just awkward for the scheduling though since I'm taking essentially all of next week off for interviews, wouldn't it be weird to take more vacation days a week or two after my "one week of vacation"?
