I just got my first offer through careers.stackoverflow.com. The offer was for places other than the ones listed in my "Where do you want to work?". This is one of my pet peeves. There needs to be an easy way to flag employers as not following the rules.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
First, make sure you have not ticked the "willing to relocate" box in your profile
You can respond to employers now with actual text -- you might add a reminder in your response along the lines of "This job is a thousand miles away and I indicated in my profile I am not willing to relocate."
Beyond that, we'll look into it and make sure it's not a UI gaffe that caused employers to mess up.
Perhaps for now you could just email the team. If this becomes rampant, that might be a different story.
