In Careers - the location Washington, US gets turned into Washington DC. I have to put WA to convert it to the state of Washington. Saving again can corrupt it.

Actually, writing "WA, United States", resolves to Washington correctly. But if you edit the field again, it opens up as "Washington, United States", which is then resolved as Washington DC when saved.
It appears that if you enter "Washington State", it will resolve as desired. We depend on Yahoo's geocoding service; what they return is what you see.
