Meta confirms that some full-time job offers have been canceled
According to a reported by TechCrunch, Meta has confirmed reports that it has revoked full-time job offers that have been extended to some applicants. Meta hasn’t commented on how many people or departments have been affected by this action, but TechCrunch quoted a company spokesman as saying: “While this decision has not been taken lightly, it allows us to continue to consider it as we recalibrate our hiring through 2023. to match our highest priority work.”
A tweet from writer and software engineer Gergely Orosz claims that this action from Meta affected at least 20 people who originally had the offer to start in February. The tweet also points to a statement from Meta recruiters from last October about not canceling full-time job offers, only part-time job offers at risk.
Unfortunately, that policy appears to have changed, marking the first time that Meta has withdrawn signed job offers for full-time employees.
Meta isn’t the only one with the problem. Elsewhere in tech, giants like Amazon, NetflixSalesforce and even e-sports brand 100 Thieves laid off a significant percentage of their workforce.
