Applied for a New Job - 2 Weeks Later My Company Announces Merger with the Company I Applied To
I'm in an odd situation. I applied for a new job with a company that I've been interested in for the past 5 years. I began to move along in the recruiting process. A couple of weeks after applying, my current company announced a merger with the company that I applied to.
I've had a conversation with the recruiter who'll check on potential conflicts of interest. I am waiting to hear from the recruiter. This situation is unique to me. I'm unsure of where I stand as a candidate with this company I've been watching for five years.
Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of a situation similar to this? Any guidance you can share?
