I recently got a verbal offer to return to as an Account Executive at Indeed after leaving earlier this year for a start up company. I resigned last Friday after getting word that the offer should be in this week, however I received a Docusign with my relocation package outline that I signed off on. I got a call yesterday saying the offer was being retracted due to unforeseen hiring pauses. How/where do these communication breakdowns happen?

Well aware, however I was prompted with a Docusign and outlined next steps. I was fairly checked out of my previous role, so while not the end of the world for leaving there, this communication breakdown in companies should be discussed.

Sorry to hear that. Interview with other places and tell them that you have other offers. Refrain from disclosing that your past job offer was retracted. Things happen for a reason, and I'm sure you will get something good!

Sorry to hear this. Perhaps your previous employer would take you back on. This is a tough position to be in. Hope you're doing alright otherwise.

Hard to say really - somewhere between revenue and hiring managers and HR. So sorry. Regardless, very unprofessional of them.

Recruiting companies like Indeed have hiccups like these quite a bit. I remember working at Glassdoor we had random hiring freezes that were never explained to the sales staff, so I understand your frustration. I think it's fair for you to ask for someone to forecast when they anticipate the hiring pause will end

So I was told one Q and will reevaluate in Jan. No guarantee on offer however, would need to start over if/when roles reopen.

I wonder if there is any sort of breach of contract action since you already resigned from your last job and I doubt they'd be willing to take you back. Seems awfully unfair.

I don’t just rely on docusign as a confirmation of the formal acceptance of the offer. I send across the signed document, request for a confirmation of the agreement via email, and that I can move forward with the resignation process at my end. I also communicate with the HR exactly when I will be tendering my resignation. I keep them close mainly because of this reason but it’s two-ways. Companies rescind offers, and so do candidates. So we just do what we can.
