Just got a message on careers, but the employer didn't include any contact information they simply said:

Interested? Reply to this message and send over a coding sample.

I clicked 'interested'. but unless I'm missing something I can't reply directly through the careers site. I looked around and I can't find any way to contact the employer.

Is this a bug? An omission? and how can I have someone @stackoverflow let this employer know about the problem.

I wonder how many of us got this You = Django ninja? Who say "I"? – OscarRyz Nov 27 '09 at 19:03

Other way around. They're supposed to contact you -- they are emailed your mailing address when you click "I'm Interested".

Although it is odd for them not to include any contact information in their message. We're thinking of putting a "JOEL'S PRO TIPS" help section for the employers next to the message composition box.

Edit: we now have quite a bit of help text next to the employer message composition box -- and it is possible in your response to enter a message back to the employer, such as, "WTF?" (if necessary)

Ok, that answers the question. But I think it needs to be made obvious that this is happening when I click "I'm interested". Perhaps a message like: "You responded you were interested in this message. We have sent your contact information to the employer, they should be in touch with you shortly" – user138872 Nov 28 '09 at 14:44

You should email and ask them to take a look.

Now what?

Then you time them to see how fast they were to reply. But if they change their mind, tell them, "Email too old. Cannot change interest unless CV is edited." – random Nov 28 '09 at 8:40
