I always wondered why I could not find jobs in Montreal.
If I look for "Montreal", I get 0 results.
If I look for "Montréal", I get 16 results.
I think the search box should simply ignore accute accent when comparing the query with results.

We already do support typing in location names with and without accent characters. In this case, we had simply cached "Montreal" as Montreal, Wisconsin (which is, indeed, spelled without the accent), so it was showing you results there (which there are none).
Since virtually anyone typing in "Montreal" is intending Montreal, QC, Canada, I've removed that cached value. You'll notice the results are now the same for both searches. Thanks for the report.
