Applied for same job with Company and Recruiting agency
I saw a position on Indeed with a very reputable company(we'll call it company X) that I would love to work for, and so I applied. Some hours later, I saw another job posting from a staffing agency and I applied for it as well. The job titles from company X and staffing agency were the same, but the job description was different, the one from the recruiting agency was quiet vague. Anyway, I get an email two days later from a recruiter at the staffing agency inviting me for an interview. I went for the interview on June 12. It turned out the position was with Company X, but I didnt mention it to her that I had applied directly already, I wasn't sure I was supposed to. The interview went well and she told me to expect a second interview call from the hiring manager of the company X. Then on June 14, two days after my interview, I get a generic email from company X saying my application is no longer being considered. At this point, I'm confused and assume I didn't get the job, but I send an email to the recruiter to ask about when to expect the call from the hiring manager. She responds on Jun 20, saying that the hiring manager told her that she feels she will decide on the next steps early this week.
So, I don't know whether I should just move on and take that email as the rejection and maybe the recruiter is just trying to be nice. What do you guys think.
P.S I have been looking for a job in my field for quite some time, and this job has everything I want/need, hence the reason I am ranting about it.
