Is it okay to re-apply for a position you’ve already gotten a canned reject email from if the job is still posted months later?

If they wanted you they would reach out to you. Candidates fall through all the time and then candidates who were runners up get contacted. A flat rejection means you're not what they're looking for at this point in time, and this might have nothing to do with you personally, maybe the team is looking for a more diverse hire, or a particular skill set, I've even seen scenarios where a candidate is rejected bc they had the same first name as another current team member and the boss thought that two people with the same name could lead to confusion with scheduling....Best of luck with your search!

Jobs on LinkedIn stay up for months even when they get filled. Look for the ones that have been updated on LinkedIn and perhaps spruce up your resume. Remember, it usually starts with an ATS system pairing down applicants by key words

The bonuses. The bonuses. The bonuses. Funny how we always have mass layoffs just before annual bonuses are calculated. Not only wrong, but obviously a terrible long-term business strategy.
