I’m in a bit of a sticky situation- I applied to one if the Big 4 for a summer internship and got offered the role. However, I forgot that in September/ October, I had already applied to this corporation for a different role… (And was rejected). This was an honest mistake as I had applied to 100+ internship programmes, and I was going through so many assessments every single day.
Anyway, in January/December I did an application for the same firm, and got offered a place. Now, I accepted the offer, however they called me saying that they may withdraw my offer based on my chain of events. I told them that it was an honest mistake and that I genuinely had forgotten etc. But then they asked me why my email address was different, and I explained how I wanted everything academic/job related in my uni email address, and so I started sending job applications from there (rather than my personal one).
What do you guys think?
