I have applied to a company that I really want to work for directly through their website. I got a reply from the HR saying they will be scheduling interviews next week or two when the hiring manager returns from vacation. Even though they didn't mention anything about scheduling an interview for me, I want to keep high hopes for this.
Today while browsing the jobs, I found the same job posted on a recruiting agency. They don't mention the company, but I immediately identified the opportunity from job description and location.
My question is: Is it wise to apply again through the recruiter for additional exposure and show case my strong interest? Or that will be negatively received?
