Today, I learned that, even after several interviews and congratulations for getting the job, you still might not get the job. I just received an email stating that my accepted offer is now rejected. I already treated my close friends to an expensive dinner to celebrate. FML

It is essentially like the applicant got hired and then immediately fired which follows all states at-will employment statutes if the firing was for cause or economic downturn and not discriminatory reasons. So yes, it is probably legal even if it is professionally unethical.

Sweetheart, I have had this happen too... with my current job. Some corporations send out mass emails to everyone that applied- even to the one hired! You still might be golden! Talk to the person that hired you.

Worked for this corporation 3 times, 3 very different positions and this happened every time.

Since it was an email, it might be an error. Try to call the hiring manager or HR or whomever and ask about it. Those emails are automated and get sent out by mistake sometimes.
