This question already has an answer here:
A recruiter has an agreement to find applicants for a company. I, the job applicant, called the recruiter telling them that I am the best person for the job, and hand him a resume. The recruiter sends my resume to the company
I search the company's database for open jobs in the hope that their opening is public, but it is not. This ends my hope of contacting the company directly about the job, because then I would be stepping on recruiters toes. However, the company has another job opening available that is public. These job openings are in the same department.
Do I the company directly about this job, or do I delegate the work to to the recruiter for this public job opening? Keep in mind that job candidates that apply through personal connections are generally more likely to earn the job than those that applied simply through a job application.
THIS IS NOT A DUPLICATE. This concerns another job opening by the same company. Would it be okay to bypass the recruiter because the recruiter is not aware that this job opening is available?
