The I-821D is filed concurrently with the I-765. This is a requirement. If you got approved for the I-821D (DACA) this means you must have filed for the I-765 as well. It is possible not to get employment authorization in the event you did not prove "economic necessity." However you should have received a decision in the mail along with your approval for the I-821D. Consult a competent immigration attorney who is a member of AILA (American Immigration Lawyer's Association) who can assist you by checking with USCIS further and determine your next steps.
Your chances are very good.
