HSBC Face to face interview feedback (talent pool)



Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I applied for the CSO role at hsbc and passed all the stages. The final stage was to attend a face to face interview. They told me at the interview that I would be given feedback within a week. Almost a month went by and I did not hear anything. Everytime I called the recruitment line they told me my application was still being considered. Today I recieved a message saying that I was unsuccessful due to the position being filled and that I am now in the talent pool. They wrote that if any similar vaccancies come up within 3months they would contact me.

My question is, has anyone got a job after being put in the ‘talent pool’?
