Rejection reason- having or not having??

I was wondering the same. Can you please clarify, OP?

A little confused - give us some more context so we can help you out!

Issue was.. all went well in interview.. I was feeling positive for the next round. But after sometime I got call from HR and she said I am not moving further. I was shocked to hear but thought ok it happens. But main concern was the reason of rejection, as per hiring manager feedback candidate has Consulting and customer engagements touch. So I was thinking is it a valid reason, because Product Manager if he is not knowing Market, not interacting with customers, not attending customer meetings and not doing consulting, how he will define product, product roadmap, and do market analysis, prioritization etc. Etc.

yeah exactly, I think they didn't express it correctly but sometimes it's a case "we didn't know we needed this kind of experience until we got a candidate who had it"
