I have a big problem! I applied to the same job twice. Once was online directly through the company, the other was through a recruiter. What should I do???

This shouldn’t be too big of a deal, honestly. You are more likely to hear positive feedback from the company directly if they find you qualified, though. Remember that companies must pay recruiters, and they typically get a bonus if a qualified candidate is hired through them. It would be more expensive for the company to hire you through the recruiter than it would be to do it directly, so if you hear back from the recruiter and they inform you that you didn’t get an interview, this is not an automatic no to getting the job. Wait to hear back from the company for the final answer.
