A recruiter put me forward for a position several months ago, and I never heard back. I'd seen the job ad around and I believe he probably put my CV forward quite late in the process when they'd already filled or nearly filled the position. The recruiter never heard back from the hiring manager, and he eventually also stopped replying to my messages.
Two months later, that same company put up a job ad for a slightly different position (but in the same team so presumably the hiring manager was the same), and I applied directly and got the job, which I've now started.
I'd completely forgotten about that previous job application (as I had lots of ongoing applications at the time and this one never progressed), but stumbled upon those messages as I was going through my old texts.
Could I/the company get in trouble for handling my application as if I'd applied directly when the hiring manager technically already had my CV from the recruiter? Should I tell someone at the company about this?
