Today I created my profile on Careers, but I had problems with setting the region where I would like to relocate. I tried Bayern, but it turns into Germany.

So, is there a way to set the region? Or am I stuck with whole Germany?

Have you tried Bavaria? – Pëkka Jul 29 '12 at 19:20
Ah, indeed - only city level seems to be possible in Germany, or the whole country. That is a bit... imprecise. Whereas in the US, you can enter a state. – Pëkka Jul 29 '12 at 19:48
I think the location stuff is all through Yahoo, so it's not something SE can fix – Ben Brocka Jul 29 '12 at 20:08
Maybe they need a different service for coding regions, then. This really is a big impediment – Pëkka Jul 30 '12 at 6:03

We’ve made an adjustment that should improve this. Try it again?

I just tried "South of Germany", and it turned into "Germany" again :( – BЈовић May 21 '13 at 20:38
