    I had someone email me about a damn good job with a gaming company and he has emailed me a time to talk. He never called so I emailed him as just a reminder. He said he missed the first meeting because he got pulled away, he asked if we can talk today. But he still hasnt called or emailed.

    Should I send another email as just a reminder to him or will that sound pushy and desperate? This is a position of a lifetime and do not just want to sit and wait and possibly miss this chance.

    Any advice would be helpful

    Send him another email, you can't show me him that you are weak.
    You have to show him that you have the courage to do so, that you want that spot and you need that talk with him.

    Just say you are busy, and need to schedule it in. This is not an unreasonable request.

    You will only sound pushy if the tone of your email is pushy.

    I would email him and let him know you are still keen to discuss the role with him. With today being Friday, tell him you are available this evening and during the weekend if that's more convenient for him (that's assuming you are available of course). Include your mobile number in the email, so he has easy access to it if he calls over the weekend.

    I appreciate everyones input. I just went with this. Hope it was good. I am not to good with email wording, I am more of an in-person type.

    "Hope your Friday is going well. Wanted to email and see if we were still on for the phone call today? I am available anytime today or anytime during the weekend if that's more convenient for you. I dont mean to be a bother but I am very excited to talk with you about this position and possibly setting up an in-person interview.

    So you dont have to look through the previous emails, I can be reached at 555-867-5309"
