ArcaneEye38430dI had that happen once. Turned it down just to find out there was a town closer to me as the more well-known one I thought it was.
Recruiter was polish so I figured the geography might be confusing, but it turned out I just don't know my area :-p
Codex4041858430dYeah that happens a lot indeed. It might also have to do that we mind driving From The Hague to Amsterdam. While in a lot of other continents that's like a daily thing.
bahua1242430dI live in Colorado, and I get emails from recruiters in New Jersey about jobs in Tampa, Houston, and Cleveland, all over a thousand miles away. Not very good jobs either. Recruiters just spray out to as many leads as they can, regardless of viability.
Vuetiful241430dAnd there I sat a few years ago, wanting to move, but all I got was messages from recruiters in the City I tried to move away from. There is a setting in Linkedin for "cities I'm interested in", but apparently no recruiter ever looks at that.
