The waiting game - I had my second round of interview yesterday. I am anxiously waiting for a callback for the final round. How many candidates usually get selected into the final round?

Usually there’s 2-3 candidates in the final round. The team usually has a top choice and a back up. Sometimes it takes a few days to get feedback/align internally on next steps. You can always reach out and ask for the timeline/when you should expect to hear.

Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP). I don't really want to do this but I need a job, have run out of UI and don't want to deplete my savings to nothing waiting for the perfect job. If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
