I TOTALLY AGREE! have had this identical experience, right down to
the darn job still being posted. And this from a company that is trying
to hire hundreds of techies this year! They certainly didn't earn any
points in my book...

This "no response" is so frustrating--employment communication
needs to go both ways! Just as we candidates/job seekers need
to put a best foot forward (cover letter, tailored resume, portfolio, etc)
I believe companies need to have their position description clearly
articulated, be in a position to hire (not just "fishing"), and follow
up with all respondents (post card to resumes that were flushed,
call/letter to interviewees who weren't hired). It's only common
