Dear Experts, I got an offer for a job from a company pending my references being checked. I confirmed with all my references in advance and told them to expect the call. Now, all of a sudden, I've received an e-mail saying that they are rescinding the offer. There's no explanation, and when I tried to call them, I got voicemail and no one has called me back. I know all my references really well and spoke to each of them after they spoke to the company. They all confirmed they said great things about me. I'm at a complete loss as to what happened. What do you suggest I do? Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
