Ouch! Can you name names?

Another classic I see a lot is having an enormous location list that tries to encompass every location on the planet, when the agency/site only actually has jobs in one corner of one country.

Is it for real!!

I don't believe it.

Yes it is real. The global software provider is quite well known. Will see how long it takes for the errors to be picked up.

Most of the emails I receive from job seekers about job hunting say they want locations on adverts as they think the advertiser is deceiving if nothing is listed. Is it a case of be careful what you wish for!
