Nagarro is putting profile on hold after the interview process is completed?

Just a quick vent: I applied for a job that I was excited & invited me to apply. i had the call with the recruiter. 1 of my first questions: what is the time to fill this role? response: honestly? Yesterday.
I thought I was a shoe in. I met with the hiring manager and then had an interview scheduled with the VP the following week since he was on vacation. 2 days before the interview the recruiter called after 5 to say they hired an internal candidate.
Why does it take 3 weeks to determine that?
