Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

My suggestion is to add some country information to the CV, not only location:

There should be a field with my current country and a field with the country, where I would like to work.

For example I'm living in Switzerland, and I'm looking for a job in the US.

So I would be much easier to select the corresponding candidates.

Thanks Eric

I can't show you, but I entered "Zürich, Switzerland" as location. Even in the hint text it shows "London, England". Granted, this is not the Country, but just use "London, England UK". Works just fine.

"Zürich, Switzerland" will show up as "Zurich, Canton of Zurich Switzerland". "Bichelsee-Balterswil, Switzerland" will be "Bichelsee-Balterswil, Canton of Thurgau Switzerland"

Use the Location field in personal information to say where your at, and the set of locations you want to work at in the section "Where do you want to work?" at the bottom.

Perhaps not the most intuitive way, but it will do the job. Thanks – EricSch Oct 21 '09 at 12:26
