The location of the job must be clearly stated both in the
"Subject:" line of the header and in the article.
In the Subject line, use the format shown in section Q-3.1.
In the article, provide more detail if necessary to provide
the reader with the job location to within commuting distance
resolution. In many cities, this would mean a specific section
of the city or a specific suburb. The street address of the
company is usually sufficient. Providing the county and/or the
longitude and latitude may be helpful.
If the position is not of sufficient interest to the entire world,
please use the Distribution: line to limit the distribution of
the article appropriately. Limiting the distribution is especially
encouraged in cases where a government regulation makes it difficult
to hire someone from outside that government's boundary. (If your
posting software does not provide a list of distributions, see the
news administrator for your site.)
Furthermore, you may wish to consider using a local or intracompany
newsgroup as a source of candidates. An example would be triangle.jobs
for jobs within the Research Triangle Park area.
If where the worker lives is not significant, use "offsite"
as the location in the "Subject:" line. For example, a job
consisting mostly of work that can be done at home or some
other location of the worker's choosing, or a job that is
mostly travel would use "offsite" as the location.
The details would be provided in the body of the article.
Note that not requiring a worker to show up on site will
give you a larger pool of workers to select from.
If some work can be done offsite, but the worker is
required to report onsite on a frequent basis, put
the onsite location in the "Subject:" line and explain
the telecommuting details in the body of the article.
Third party recruiters sometimes claim that they cannot provide
the location without "giving away" the identity of the employer.
This is not a sufficient reason. The location MUST be provided.
Job seekers who do manage to figure out who the employer is are
reminded that employers choose to use third party recruiters for
a reason, and may not be receptive to applicants attempting to
bypass the recruiter.
