I am in a sensitive situation, I applied to an entry level position at McK after trying in vain for over 3 months to get a referral. After I applied, partners I had reached out to contacted me to tell me that they are willing to put me in touch with people in my target office (they don't know I already applied). What do I do? Do I withdraw my application and talk to them? Or do I wait and hope I don't get rejected and that they may refer me although I already applied?
All answers will be greatly appreciated since I am in a time sensitive situation (the office is supposed to reach out to us this week with their final decision).
