I received a notice of referral for a job and it says I was referred, but the website said I was not referred.
I got a call for an interview for the job on Monday. I was thinking I did not get selected for that job, but I am glad I got the call.

Also, I received another letter of referral for a different job which says not referred, but as I read further down the letter, it said I was a top-rated qualified applicant and that my application was forwarded to the selecting official for further consideration.

What should I think of the second job letter? Does it mean not referred?

Because of this I sent the HR department an email. I am now waiting for a response.

Thanks for you help and advice.

Sometimes when these contradictory notices happen, it's just a mistake. If you're contacted for an interview, it confirms you were actually referred. Asking HR doesn't hurt, for clarification.

Other times, it's not a mistake, because you were "Not Referred" for one grade, but you were "Referred" for a different grade. Or it could apply to location too. You were "Not Referred" for one location, but "Referred" for a different location. Or you were initially "Not Referred," but people withdrew from consideration and they did a new list where you're now "Referred."
