Interviewed for a GS-15 (same agency but different office) and totally aced the interview with excellent answers. They know I’m a top performer with senior references. However I noticed there was an internal candidate who has been there for few years and interviewed that’s a veteran. I feel my chances just sank and want to gauge thoughts.

Not really. Talent retention is something that any governmental agency is considering a top priority nowadays. If you're a significantly higher performer than the other candidate, you may get the job. Good luck!

Hola everyone,
I have 1.5years of experience in Angular and recently i started looking for job opportunities. I was hoping that it will take 2-3 months at least to find a job opportunity and then when i serve 90 days notice period then I'll have around 2years of experience. But i got an offer letter in the first company i interviewed at and they are offering 80% hike.
I think i still have many things to learn and i can do it in my current company. Now should i accept that offer letter or reject
