I'd like to use a single word that means "a chance to makeup for past mistakes." It would likely be a synonym of any of the words/phrases in the following list:
I recognize that this is a long list, but none of the single words here work for me - they're all a little too on the nose. I'm inspired by the Biblical concept of the Jubilee year, a year in which all debts were forgiven. For further context, the word should be applicable in reference to technical mistakes (not necessarily moral mistakes) as demonstrated by the sentence below.
A sample use:
"Due to her poor job performance, her first annual evaluation at her new post was very negative. This made her eager for something of a(n) __________ so she could demonstrate her competence to her supervisor."
