Made My Boss Look Bad, How Do I Recover?

3

Dear Experts,

I started working at an accounting firm two months ago and was recently given an assignment by my manager. I completed the assignment before it’s due date and presented it to my boss. He forwarded it along to the appropriate party and unfortunately, they caught a mistake.

I’m afraid I made my boss look bad. He hasn’t treated me the same since and has yet to give me any new assignments. How do I recover from this?
