Hello,

I often receive job notices for tutoring or interpretation. I don't mind, except that about 100% of them are ruled out because of location. It would therefore help to include the location for location-based jobs inside the email notice (vs. somewhere at the bottom of the web page...), so that the offer can be dismissed immediately if need be.

Thanks,

Jacques

So right. It would be (also) be useful if the location were invariably included in the titles of posts for jobs of this sort.

Good point - I've added this to our 'wish list' for the next Jobs/BB release.

Best regards,
Ralf

Thanks.

Of course, to do things better, this should be coupled with the Maps feature, and every member should specify, in their preferences for job notices, how far away a location-based job can be in order to be notified to them.

I think it is actually the only way to integrate location-based jobs in our (usually) location-independent context. Since there is already the Maps feature, it may not be overkill.
