When I click the Premium Job Posting link sent to my e-mail, there's an option to "Reply to this message (optional)". To whom would this reply be sent?

TIA

Confused with the interface Dec 5, 2006

Me too, I was confused with the interface when replying to a Premium Job. First, the interface does not look in the line of usual ProZ' interface, second, the scope of fields to be filled seems too limited. Last, but not the least, I'm not sure which info about me was sent to the outsourcer. No `rates' field, no profile link, `no' many other important info explicitly visible.

Hi Mikhail,

When you submit a reply to a Premium Job message the reply is sent to the outsourcer who originally contacted you. I will try to clarify this in the interface.

Best regards,

Jason

Hi Kirill,

In the Premium Job system, outsourcers can choose what information they want to request from interested candidates. Some ask candidates to complete more fields than others.

Any information you have already entered in your profile (and given us permission to show) is automatically available for the outsourcer to see when viewing your quote.

I will try to clarify this in the interface, and will look into adding more standardized fields to the submission form.

Thanks,

Jason
