While updating my careers profile I've noticed that I can't enter country names anymore as locations where I'm willing to relocate to. The problem is that if I'm willing to relocate o a different country, I might not care about the city...

The error I'm receiving when I enter a country name, e.g. Denmark:

Sorry, we need a more specific location than 'Denmark'. Try again?

If I enter Luxembourg, the entry gets corrected to "Luxembourg City, Luxembourg" which is not what I actually meant.

I don't know how to specify that I would be willing to work anywhere in a country or even a continent.

However, if you enter "Singapore", since it's a city-state, the country is the city. – cdeszaq Mar 19 '12 at 20:08

Good point. You can now enter a country as a relocation target.

I tried today to enter 'Denmark' and I get the same error aforementioned. Has this policy been reverted? – Tristan Jan 1 '15 at 19:15
