I'm currently looking for a job and have been contacted by various companies and agencies.
I interviewed with a subcontractor (call them A) and was expecting feedback from them after they reviewed my tests so that they can see what client of theirs is the best fit for my skills.
Meanwhile, I was contacted by another subcontractor (call them B) that proposed an interview with one of their clients (call them C). I'm to meet with them (with B) before my application is sent to the client (C).
Now A has returned with a feedback. The client they want to send me to is the same, it's client C.
I would be hired by subcontractor A or B, but be contracted to C.
Now, I'm in this entanglement, and don't know what to do.
I'm thinking to cancel the interview with B and tell them that I'm already going to see that client from the part of another company. I consider company B better than A. As a result, I thought I might go that route. However, if A already sent my CV to C, and I refuse to go with A, and later I show up coming from the part of B, then I'm totally going to make a fool out of myself.
How do you handle the situation where two subcontractor companies try to send you to the same client?
