I received this notice following a job interview for a data scientist position:
At this time, based on the overall team feedback, we have decided to change direction somewhat in terms of aligned technical expertise and business needs. We will not be moving forward with you for this role but I would like to continue to stay connected with you and be an advocate in terms of identifying future roles that might be more perfectly suited to the many skill sets you possess. I would also like to share your information with my colleague, XXXXX, who supports our other analytics teams.
Is this just a polite but canned rejection notice, or is the company really interested in keeping my resume on file? I'd like to think the latter, but don't want to get my hopes up.
