I recently received this call by the HR of the MBB consulting firms (I do not specify which one for privacy reasons) where basically I was told that my performance after the second round interview was good, since I only had good feedbacks but that unfortunately there was no position open anymore for me to continue the selection process. The HR also specified that she/he will contact me in a few months (october/november) as soon as a new position is opened in order to have the final round interview and possibly the job offer.
What do you think it means? I mean, can I assume that it is true or is it just a polite manner some HR have to reject somebody without stating it directly?
I already had last year other interviews with other firms that rejected me with no such motivations, that's why I still have some hope, but I don't know...
