I applied position A at the company last October through the Headhunter. I did't get that job and I wasn't satisfied to work with the headhunter.Frankly I was very upset that the headhunter didn't reply back to my email and found out he did't pass the documents that I wanted to deliver to the Hiring manager.
About a month later, I contacted by the other headhunter from other agency. The position was for the same company that I've applied for a month ago, (the position was in different department). I told the headhunter about the situation , at first she said that I might not be able to apply for that position.
the day after , she called me that she talked about me to the HR at the company and HR wanted to meet me. I asked the headhunter I already met the HR at the company. but the headhunter told HR team is totally divided by department so it will be fine at that stage.
After several interview, I got final interview and went well, I am very positive getting this job.
Today, the recruiter called me and she will not be able to handle my process anymore since I represented by other headhunter before. (Also the HR who was working for this position has quit, so their HR team was restructured and HR who I met for the first position will be handling my process)
I like the 2nd headhunter,(I know seems she shouldn't proceed process with me), I felt she was very helpful.
the head hunter said if I want to keep process with her , email direct to the HR and state that I want to work with her instead of first agency.
My concerns are:
1)It would be ok to ask HR? I'd love to give the credit to my 2nd headhunter but I don't know well about headhunting industry and don't want to create the complicated situation (+ legal issue probably) to effect their hiring decision.
2)I haven't got any official offer and only have a good feeling, so I'm not sure if it's appropriate timing to the email HR.
