It might have to do with where you're located, but no. The several that I applied for wouldn't even interview me because I apparently wasn't well versed in their stack (despite being well educated, solid experience, proven track-record, and a strong will).

I would totally attribute it to being just me, but in the last month I've received offers from Amazon, the DoD, Intel, and a few smaller shops in my area.

It's funny too, because I see the same companies continually posting the same ads month after month in the "Who's Hiring" posts, so they must have a fairly strong bias against false positives.

Thanks for the feedback, which also matches my experience, but I was actually asking about the 'Who wants to be hired?' posts, not the 'Who is hiring?' posts.
