When I clicked "not interested" to a message in Careers, I was given this amusing instruction (emphasis mine):

Can you tell us why you're not interested in this job inquiry? This information is only used internally to help us to better match companies and job seekers better.

I think just one "better" is enough in that sentence. Keep whichever one you prefer.

    Personally, I prefer leaving out the last "better": This information is only used internally to help us to better match companies and job seekers. – rossipedia Mar 14 '14 at 23:30
  • Who writes these things? There's also everything-is-lowercase problems everywhere. – bjb568 Mar 15 '14 at 0:38
  • @bjb568 If you see things like that, please don't hesitate to bring them up in a question here. We'd love to get any inaccuracies fixed. – rossipedia Mar 15 '14 at 6:01
  • @rossipedia I'm question banned here. Anyway, "flag this question" instead of "Flag this question". "feed of this question" instead of "Feed of this question". "site design / logo © 2014 stack exchange inc user contributions licensed..." instead of "Site design and logo © 2014 Stack Exchange inc; User contributions licensed..." – bjb568 Mar 15 '14 at 6:23
  • "possible duplicate" instead of "Possible duplicate" – bjb568 Mar 15 '14 at 17:43

Yup, that is an odd turn of phrase. I went ahead and removed the second "better". It should now read:

This information is only used internally to help us to better match companies and job seekers.
