So about a month ago I had my interview with a financial firm for a compliance position. I thought that the interview went well but since three weeks went by in silence I figured I didn't get the job and moved on. I have applied to other positions, for which I am in the middle of scheduling future interviews.
Then, last week, I get an email from the HR department, for the interview I did a month ago, about completing the second part of job application. The funny thing is that position is no longer available and it even states on the company's website that it has been filled.
I am curious do firms still require one to complete a job application for a position that might have been filled by someone else?
