I'm currently searching for a new job. I've applied to a particular Company X and was invited for an on-site interview next week after a phone interview with a person from Company X.
In the meantime, a person from recruitment agency contacted me and the offer they presented seemed interesting as well, so I applied, too. But upon very close inspection of both offers and speaking to the person from the agency over the phone, I have a reason to suspect the following. The recruitment agency is looking for a candidate for company X as well, for the exact role I'm already applying to directly at Company X. The wording of the offers is different, but the technologies used are pretty rare and the location of the company matches, too. I'm not certain, but I'd say it's quite probable.
I will be having a phone interview with a person from the recruitment agency next week. Should I contact them beforehand (via email, for example), and ask them if they are recruiting for the Company X? I know that they probably cannot disclose this information, but I don't want to waste their time, because the Company X already reached out to me first and already invited me for an on-site interview.
