This question already has an answer here:
I'm new to utilizing recruiters and had a question.
I had interviews (one phone and then in person) with a company through a recruiter. The recruiter made a couple of mistakes 1) she confused my resume with someone else with the same first name for the initial phone interview and then 2) she mixed us up again for the times we were to have our in person interviews.
The recruiter also kept accidentally calling me instead of the other prospect and leaving messages that I knew were not for me or simply hanging up.
In other words, the recruiter kept making errors. Ones that may have cost me (or the other prospect) from getting the job.
I was told by the recruiter that I didn't get the job because they wanted more experience (it's an entry level position). The recruiter also told me that the company is not working with the recruiting firm any longer.
Neither of us got the job because I see the exact position on LinkedIn and via the company and not a recruiter.
My question: would it be ethical to re-apply for this position? I really liked the culture and the location. Should I even bother?
