So my job offer has been rescinded a week after being offered. I would simply just like to scream into the void because what? I just spoke with the benefits coordinator asking for more details about the benefits package and now today I received this email? Wtf?

You don't have to be confidential!! Good for you. Put it on LinkedIn and ask people to connect you to open roles.

That’s so weird ! Even the email they sent is super shady too , they didn’t even give you a reason or at least make up one … might not want to hear this but I’m glad you dodged this bullet .. this company does not seem like they care at all

Oh my gosh, what a BS move on their end!!! I would call or email them back immediately and ask WTF in the politest way possible. It's wrong that companies have free reign to do this with no repercussions since people often make big life changes to prepare for a new role. I would definitely ask them for the reason for their decision and keep a bit of a guard up in your dealings with them from here on out. I'm so sorry this happened to you!

Oh I asked! But they’re never going to respond 🤷🏽‍♀️

Try looking for a job in Boston through an app called Handshake.

So glad you dodged that bullet! My last company was so mentally exhausting and toxic and had almost no consistency; the only thing consistent is them flip flopping about a variety of topics and showing 🤏🏾 appreciation.

Thank you!! I’m definitely gonna give handshake a try. I agree, definitely dodged a bullet! I had to follow up with them for them to reach out to my references 🤦🏽‍♀️

This is frustrating. They did not even give you a proper explanation. Drop the name so that we can avoid this company.

Wow, this is crazy! Sorry this happened to you.

Thank you so much for the support everyone! I’ve already spoken to a recruiter from Robert Half today who told me the original offer I had was an extreme low ball anyway so thats already a good enough reason for it to have happened for me! I’m confident theres something better out there 🙏
