A friend of mine recently (Mar 28) interviewed for a project manager position with a major full line insurance company in LA. She found the job through a headhunter...errr... recruiter... (Sorry Mark :wink:
The hiring manager and an HR person were in the interview.
The next day, the recruiter told her that they really liked her but did not see a fit for the PM job. He added that they said they saw a really good fit for a Business Analyst position that was being newly created. They did not want to discuss this with her as they were waiting for requisition approval for the job (there are currently 370 odd postings on their website, so approval does not seem to be an issue). The recruiter finished this up saying that they liked her so much, he was SURE there was going to be an offer.
I can't imagine anyone making a promise like this and now she is afraid to contact the hiring manager directly. Anyone ever have an experience like this? Should she contact the manager directly now?
Thanks in advance
