I am in a very confusing situation.
I have a partner who has referred me for one position at MBB.
I have attended all the events (invite-only events). Last month I had sent an email to HR to know the status of my application.
She did not reply to me for 2 weeks so I asked the partner to ping him. However, after sending an email to the partner. I got the reply from HR that they will get back to me after 2 weeks. The next day I got an email from the partner that he will forward my query to the team and on the next day I got a rejection email even though HR had told me that he will get back to me after two weeks.
Partner's office and the office in which I have applied are different.
Even though I got the rejection email, I still got the invitation to an event (invite-only event) which was a couple of days ago. The organizer of the event and recruiter are the same person.
Now it has been already two weeks and I have not heard from HR. Should I tell the partner regarding this situation? I want to be careful as I do not want to hamper my chances?
I have already emailed HR and have told her the scenario but have not got the reply and it has been 10 days.
