“This afternoon, my offer at Tesla was rescinded," a woman wrote while sharing how this “unfortunate experience” has impacted her life.

An ex-Meta intern took to LinkedIn and claimed that her offer at Tesla was rescinded just 72 hours before she was supposed to join Elon Musk’s company. She shared that she got this offer after “gruelling three months applying and interviewing for new positions”, after being laid off by her previous employer. She claimed she even turned down another offer to join Tesla.

“This afternoon, my offer at Tesla was rescinded 72 hours before I was supposed to start due to a company reorganisation,” she wrote. “Frustrated and heartbroken do not even begin to describe how I feel, and I know I share the same sentiment with anyone else who has had the unfortunate experience of enduring a layoff and/or rescinded offer, especially from Tesla over the past two weeks,” she added.
