Hi, I updated my profile after my last move, 9 months ago, but when I post a job my old address and contact details are still listed. What am I doing wrong?

Job posting contact data need to be edited Apr 23, 2007

Dear Jim Turner,

As a service to previous job posters, their contact information is stored in their job posting form. To update your job posting information, you will need to edit the contact data in that form when posting a job. To modify contact details, make sure the box on the left hand side of the green "Your Contact Information" bar says "- Hide" and not "+ Show"; in the latter case, click to expand that section of the job posting form.

If you have already posted a job that has the wrong contact information in it, please contact a Jobs moderator with the new information via the link, "Contact jobs moderators if there is a problem with this job posting" at the bottom of your job posting page. One of us will be glad to enter the information for you.

Yolonda is correct, staff will work to make contact details more apparent on the job posting form Apr 24, 2007

Thanks Yolonda for the follow-up (which is spot-on).

Hi Jim,

We'll work to make the contact details section more apparent on the job posting form. Currently it is collapsible (the "- Hide" and "+ Show" options), and I can understand this may be confusing when you see your job posted with old contact information.

We'll write back here after we implement any changes regarding this issue.

Best regards,
Justin
