Recently I had a phone call for a X position in a company.
They interviewed me and asked if I would also accept the position Y. I said "Yes".
Last week, I had a face-to-face interview in their premises, but for the position Y. The interview was average and I was not sure of the possible answer from their side.
Yesterday, I got an e-mail from the HR (not an automated mail, but a real person) and they told me that I was not accepted for the position X. However, I had the actual interview for the position Y. I am thinking of the following possibilities:
- They found someone else for position X and sent mails to the other candidates. However, I still have chance for position Y
- I am also rejected for Y, but instead, they just sent me this e-mail for position X since I know where else I have applied for.
- I am rejected for Y, but HR made a mistake with the position name.
Considering the worst case (the second and third), to whom should I write the email?
I have the emails of the person from the HR and also the manager who interviewed me. Is it acceptable if I directly contact to manager considering that he is busy and might not be able to answer the emails? I would like to do that to learn the actual status of my application.
