A recruiter contacted me on behalf of Company X. Company X was very interested in contacting me, and an interview was set up. Just before the interview, I was told an emergency came up with Company X, and the interview was rescheduled. After rescheduling, I receive a call from the recruiter, informing me that his contact at Company X (the person who was to interview me) has been laid off, and so the interview fell through completely.
The job posting still exists on the company's website a couple weeks later. If I am still interested in the job, what can/should I do in this situation? Should I contact someone else at the company directly? Is the company unable to initiate contact with me (I assume they have enough information to find me) due to contractual obligations to the recruiter they had previously working for them?
