    Post I am sorry to reconnect a little bit earlier

    A CEO has advised me to reconnect with him in 4 weeks so that they can put me through interview process. My contract with current employer has about to end and don't want to renew my contract until I finalise the interview process with the new company.

    I am thinking of reconnecting with the CEO a little earlier due to the issue of renewing my contract. What do you suggest me to say noting that he is a an English native speaker.

    I suggest:

    I am sorry to reconnect a little bit earlier

    I hope you don't mind my getting in touch sooner than suggested, but ...

    I hope you don't mind my getting in touch sooner than suggested, but my contract with my current employer ends in a few days and I want to postpone renewing it or putting it on hold until I finalize the interview with your company as I might be accepted and join you and this what I really looking for.

    This is too long a sentence to start with.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Economist2010, you don't seem to be taking any of the advice people have been giving you.

    You're assuming that an interview guarantees a job. It doesn't.

    I'd just postpone signing the contract and wait to be called for an interview.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
