I'd say if the position is still posted they still need to fill it. No one likes to be inundated with resumes.

I'll quit being coy but I'd rather not type the name out loud. It's perhaps not known as an IT firm so much nowadays.

Oracle is a database firm

And at the moment facebook is no match for Google therefore it is not facebook either

Yahoo? They have a cute CEO but it can't be Yahoo

Are you looking for work, or a date?

Better get some priorities in order.

Quite possibly because there are actually multiple openings for the same position. E.g. they need n "software engineers", and they only need to post one ad with the job description (which is the same for each one).

No, there's really only one reason, and it's "because there were other candidates who fit the position better than that candidate did."

Count me among those who were surprised you didn't know these.

If she and I weren't both married I'd date Marissa Mayer.

I just realized that Adobe also has several positions that were posted quite a while ago

Would you really want to work somewhere that produces such buggy rubbish?
There's a guy on here who works for a company I'd love to work for but, sadly, I don't measure up on any way.
Other than that I'd say the role is much more important than the company.

All of the silicon valley companies generally leave a wide variety of postings up all the time (even if they don't have immediate availability of the position). The purpose is generally to net potential candidates for the position. If a candidate comes along which is highly desired then the team associated with that position makes a business case to their manager and it is either approved or not. I've interviewed at silicon valley companies before and that's generally the procedure. Usually there is no position there but if the candidate is good enough they'll make a request to open a position for the technically approved candidate.

Thank you, that does explain quite a bit. I wish companies would send automated emails telling them that they decided to go with other candidates and if possible, briefly describe why the candidate was not chosen,
