I feel this question might be a duplicate, but if it isn't is it on topic to post?
I was contacted for contract work by a contract agency for a company I really wanted to work for as a full time employee. However since I also applied for an actual job, I was quickly contacted for an official position with the company as well after I notified them of this.
I finished an interview and I called a HR person today about if I had the position. She said she was 90% sure and was going to get back to me today. They are very swamped with hiring right now apparently. However, she also wanted me to cancel contact via an email or other means with the contract company for the other available position for that same company.
What should I do in this case? I want to work for the company but don't want to ruin any chance. 90% is not 100% and I don't have an official offer yet.
