I was contacted by a recruiter about a job, and my resume was presented to the company. I interviewed but rejected the offer because it was a temp-to-hire position. As much as I like the job and the company, my family needs the benefit that comes with a permanent position.
A few days later I checked the company website and applied to the same job but in a permanent position. I don't mean to cheat on the recruiter, but now I'm a little worried. Have I hurt my chances by applying to the company directly?
