It's likely the latter. It happens often and down the line a role opens up and HR calls from that list.

What was the role? If it's a bulge bracket with lots of turnover, I'd probably follow up because what do of have to lose?

It depends. I was told the same by a bank and they do follow up and tell me about another role. But it depends on the tone when they contact you too. It does not hurt to follow up tbh

Realizing that there is probably a reason imposter complex is rampant among female leaders in advertising right around the same time it’s apparent that there is still a pretty thick glass ceiling with a big queue of women lined up behind a tiny crack fighting with each other for scraps. If you’re intuition is telling you that you aren’t good enough to get ahead, it’s not a complex, it’s just an impossible standard. Get out of line and start your own company.
