When I overheard a woman bragging about her recent Yahoo! promotion on the bus the other day, I assumed it was a rightfully earned accomplishment - but headlines about high-level departures suggest the move may have been more out of necessity than purely deserving hard work.
Yahoo! has some odds working against them like incongruous management, Microsoft abandoning their bid to buy the company, and a falling stock price, but recruiters have ramped up hiring efforts in Silicon Valley to fill about 700 open positions. Engineers are particularly in demand at the tech company but other opportunities also exist.
