I have a very unusual situation at work:
I am currently working for a consultancy firm. Since I am not very happy at my job I have considered a few times to leave. Last week I applied for another job (no response yet) at, say company X. Yesterday, one of my managers called me to say that I will be going to a new project in two weeks at company X (probably same department as I was applying for).
This really is a coincidence because I know that the firm I'm working for is not much involved with company X and above that company X is abroad.
At this point I'm not sure what to think about this situation. On one hand this is good news as I get to know company X very well and I get the chance to network. On the other hand, company X has received my application so I am not sure what they will think about the fact that I will be working there as a consultant soon.
What should I say if a recruiter of company X calls me?
Suppose that they reject my application because they find me unsuitable then it will be weird since I am then still working there as a consultant.
I think the best way to handle this is to be truly honest with company X when the time comes?
Any tips and hints would very welcome. Thanks.
