Wondering if anyone else has had this experience: Invited for campus interview in November, along with 3 other candidates. For what it's worth, I left feeling as if I did all that I could to get an offer (good rapport, talks, etc.) — so no hard feelings if I was selected or not. I knew I couldn't have done anything additional to gain an offer.
No word from SC (aside from saying there would be a delay in hiring decision, which is fairly normal) for several months. I read on the wiki that a job had been offered and accepted (congrats to the new hire!), so figured as a campus invitee I would receive word from SC chair at some point. Several weeks passed, and I heard nothing — until Monday, when I received a canned email from HR saying that I was "not selected for this job." This notification was only surprising given that I was a shortlisted candidate, had met the department, etc. BUT what do I know.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Is it normal to be rejected after a campus visit in this way? As I said, I have zero hard feelings either way, just hoping to get a sense of the regularity with which this occurs. Thanks!
