We all hear how great it looks for a candidate to rebound after a mistake they figured, and actually pick up on it to refine their approach/solution.
However, if an issue was there in the structure, and the candidate discovers the issue Mid-way, would it be ok to acknowledge that issue, and ask for 30 seconds to restructure their thoughts and proceed ?
Another scenario might be during the recommendation. Let us say that the candidate has forgotten to ask for the target, timeline (increase by X, or achieve by X time), and only figured it out as they were going to present their recommendation. Would a question look bad at that stage ? or would it add some points to the candidate ?
I would like to know what are the best practices in this area (discovering a mistake, trying to fix it).
