I just got a hit on careers (Thanks Jeff et al!!), but I wasn't interested. I wanted to decline, but say more than just "No Thanks".

Can you add the ability to add a message that will go along with the No Thanks response? Declining without saying anything else feels way to impersonal.

You can now add a short response to the potential employer in all cases


Me too (sorry AOL flashback)
I would like to say - thanks but not moving to New York (particularly as I'm not even in the USA)

On this note there is only a 'would you relocate' option.
There is no way to list which countries you can / would want to - work in.

    That's not true, you can list as many locations as you want where you want to work. Commented Dec 9, 2009 at 23:18

    ok thanks - I hadn't spotted that. So I should list places I can work in order eg. London -> UK -> Eu as new locations ? Does this tie into the employer search ? Commented Dec 10, 2009 at 18:22
  • Yes, list as many locations as you want. Locations be as small or as large of an area as you require; usually smaller is better, but "United Kingdom" and "Europe" are fine, too. When employers search for candidates by location, any intersections will be returned in the results. Commented Dec 11, 2009 at 5:53
  • For example, if you entered "London" as a location and an employer searches for candidates willing to work in the "United Kingdom", your CV will be returned. The reverse is true, as well - if your objective is to work in the "United Kingdom," employers searching for candidates willing to work in "London" would return your CV.

    Thanks Jarrod, you might want to give some thought to the rules. I can work anywhere in the Eu. If somebody posted a job in Germany would listing Europe as a location match their search, or I would I have to list every Eu country separately? Commented Dec 11, 2009 at 20:01
