Sometime quite recently I read a comment that somebody made about moving away from your city and employers due to covid. The point that they were making was that while employers were ok for us to do this while there was not much choice to work from home or not, once the pandemic was over, employers would require most of their staff to be back in the office. Therefore making a decision to move permanently thousands of miles away would not be in your best long term interest for your career. They went into more detail but that was the crux of it. Ring any bells?

Jobsfilter. A year and a half ago, the idea of a jobseeker section for Jobs was broached, but there was no definitive response from the mods. Has there been any movement on this? This would be a wonderful addition for those Mefites who find themselves among the unemployed.
