I am actively looking for a job with careers.stackoverflow.com now. My use case is "find all places that are not far than XXX miles from YYY." And when I look through search results I see only the name of the city and the name of the country, like this "Munich, Germany". But I'd like to see map (e.g. Google-Maps) near by to check out visually how far this location is from original search request.
I realize that including map in search result can overload user interface, but it might be good idea to include the map into detailed job description. Anyway I have to open the detailed job description to decide whether to apply or not.
I came to that solution when realized that I'm keeping opened google maps in spare browser tab to identify job places.
UPDATE: Adding some details by request in comments. I see two cases here.
- I'm curious about job location because sometimes it's not evident by small city name where it is located.
- If I look for a job in the same city I reside in, it would be great to know how far the new job from my home or from the nearest underground station.
