This question already has an answer here:
I went through multiple interviews with a firm culminating in a final interview with the VP. It seemed like a final step to just seal the deal and I had a great conversation for 90+ minutes where we even discussed which team I could join. He said that he would discuss with the other managers who had interviewed me the next day and they would get back to me next week. The very first thing next morning I receive a rejection email so I was a little surprised and then later in the afternoon the VP replied to my thank you message on LinkedIn where he said that he was looking forward to speaking to me the next week. Should I respond to him?
