No it shouldn’t. Only concern (very slight concern at that) is if they are already moving along with another candidate

It might. Depends on their timeline. Doesn't hurt to ask. Just clearly communicate with the recruiter, ask about their timeline, and make a decision.

If it’s at Citadel yes. They canceled my interview process even though I explicitly stated I got a concussion and asked to reschedule in a few days.

Haha yes I did

Call the recruiter and ask. Explain the situation and see what they say. It might affect your chances, but if it's a legit emergency, do you have a choice?

I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?
