News: ALAJobs international filter not working…

12.12.16 – FYI: for those interested in international positions posted by ALAJobs, I usually recommend going to the ‘All States’ field on the homepage, clicking on the drop down arrow/menu on the right, and choosing ‘Other/Non-US’.  This usually results in a list of all non-US positions as well as virtual ones.  However last week, when I searched using this filter, I started to receive a message saying ‘Hmm… we weren’t able to find any jobs matching your search: Other / Non-US. Please try a new search with different criteria’.
I searched all positions and found one in Cuba and one in the UK (see my prior posts for more information), so I suspected some sort of update had occurred and wrote to let them know of this error/glitch.
Today, I received the following answer: We currently have filters for British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Alberta, and a number of other international locations. Since we do have those locations listed, a posting in one of those may not show up under the Other/International filter option.
Is it me or is this a non-answer? Anyway, I wrote back pointing out that their answer does NOT solve the problem and in the meantime will look via date posted, which is a complete pain, but hopefully the problem with be soon solved…

    Thanks for your diligence on this matter. I agree, it was a non-answer by them. #internationallibrarianwannabe
