I was contacted by a recruiter for a job in company where I am already employed.

    They were so impressed that they want to hire you again.

    @molaram I so wish that was possible.

    @divinedragon an other way is that you can use this offer to get an counteroffer from the company.

    @molaram why? its completly normal in our industry to go where you get an better offer.

    Demand an offer, accept it, enjoy double salary.

    Or they will fire you to hire you paying less

    I left a job that I got through a recruiter. He layer contacted me about another job, thinking I was still at the job he placed me at. He wasn't supposed to do that (normally recruiters agree to not poach people from their own clients). When I told him I had already switch jobs he asked where I was currently. Come to find out the job I had gotten on my own is the same position he was trying to place me in. Recruiters are worthless and have no idea what they're doing.

    I guess the only way this is undeetaabsle is if your linkedin is out of date..

    Go for it - either for fun and lulz - or to get a higher offer you can then use as proof that they actually should pay you more...

    @witchDev Once I got to know its the same company, I politely said, I have been working here already. To this he also laughed and told me to reach out to him if I plan to leave.

    “I’m currently working at {companyName} but am always interested in hearing about opportunities.“

    That might actually get you a raise if they think you are on the prowl.

    Have you continued with the interview? Maybe you get two salaries from the same company! 😆

    i once got contacted by 3 each from different recruiting firm within 2 days all offering the same job.

    one of them, when i told him i'm already in process with his competition about it, was like "oh... okay, i've got another one, a bit worse fit for you, but..." and then proceeded to offer me the job i had quit just before.

    Oh man, that's hilarious! I've heard of cases where HR databases aren't updated, but this is next level. My friend had something similar happen, though not this ironic. Probably some mix-up or maybe the recruiter works with multiple firms and just didn't cross-check. For instance, have you seen https://ukrainian.us/chicago/job ? They've got quite a few listings, and things can get muddled up easily if a recruiter's not careful.
