In March this year, while networking one partner had forwarded my CV to the HR team and I was invited to the next stage (Online test - which has minimal weightage as mentioned by them in the email). I do not know who the partner was as I had approached 10 partners and none of them replied to me but one of them directly passed my CV to the HR team.
After giving the test I had spoken to a lot of people and got my CV reviewed and everybody asked me to do changes in it (Not sure why partner directly passed it). I did that and got good reviews after that. I wanted to reupload my updated CV and was about to mail HR but before that, I got the rejection email. This was in June.
I wanted to apply again with the new CV and got the referral from the Project Leader. Yesterday I got an email from HR stating that I was rejected in June so I need to wait until next year June to apply again.
I do not want to wait for that much time. My CV is strong now as compared to the previous one (which I did not want to upload) as I have got it reviewed by many people.
How do I convey this thing to HR that the CV they reviewed a couple of months ago was not the CV I wanted them to review and before I could email them I got the rejection email?
I do not want to sound as if I am making some story to get in?
