No, they ain't searching someone; they advertising for free. Not every vacancy is meant to be filled; half of them are out there just to create an image.
Yes, they were searching.
But they didn't find anyone as long as the 2nd on charge had something to say. He was the one rejecting me because I didn't know X. During the interview he told "I want to find someone who I can trust, as the guy XXYYZZ who I can blindly trust, if he says 'that won't work', that won't get out of the test lab".
My question: "How long has he been doing this?"
Boss' answer: over 15 years
Me: WTF | :WTF: D'Oh! | :doh: (And I have only asked for 6 months...) Stood up and said: Thanks for your time, have a nice afternoon.

The department eventually got a new boss, and they then filled the vacancy some weeks later (22 months after my interview).

That's PR, nothing more. Not every ad that asks for workers is actually serious about hiring. Some of them just want to look succesful.
I know... I have seen that and other tactics i.e.
Offers that ask for impossibles, just to frigthen people that might get intimidated
Offers that ask for very vague things so that you are supposed to do everything, from coding to cleaning bathrooms
Offers already assigned before getting public (one that I found interesting and wanted to apply to was published on friday, was there for a full week and got deleted on following monday because HHRR were forced to make the offers public in at least 3 weeks, please note the "in" and the missing "for").
...

But, as I said, I am really happy they didn't hire me that time... I like what I now do way more than what I was expected to do there.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
