Let me add that "pertinent info" should include the geographic
location of the opening. Many of the postings that have been
sent do not include this, and it requires then an extra email
exchange from anyone interested to determine whether the geographic
area is a match to the candidate's needs.

I really can't understand why anyone should have to point this
out!
