Interviews rescheduled from today to Monday because I mixed up times by 15 minutes in my head. Should I acknowledge the rescheduling and apologize to each of the 3 interviewers on the calls (there are 3 calls for round 1)? Or just not acknowledge? I don't have the email of my interviewers so can't contact directly now.

I wouldn’t over think it, I had to reschedule interviews 3 times with one company before just due to how meeting heavy my role was, they were understanding

What if I already told HR that it was a mixup on my part?

It's a tech company if it matters but idk

I would just make sure to smooth it over with HR well (they’ll likely be in the final debrief) and not make too big a deal of it with the interviewers

Ok cool I talked to HR. They were the ones who rescheduled. So just don't say anything to the interviewers?

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?

Hi! I'm currently in a dilemma.

Have any of you accepted an offer and then got an offer from another company that you wanted to work at and left the job that you just started? What other advice do you guys have?
