I have to say that I disagree. I am one of those soon to graduate hungry for
jobs people! I am not a USA citizen or from a developed country with plenty
of job opportunities either.
I think it is very hard to concentrate information now days and so it is
great to be able to have access to all sorts of opportunities in one
email-list! I already check about 4 email-lists with opportunities and
sometimes it is a lot to go through on a daily basis.
I think it is very important that everybody knows what is out there.
Specially because a lot of EU scholarships/opportunities and most government
jobs in Australia, USA, New Zealand, etc. (in most countries actually) are
nationality specific. It will be more time to have to check another email
list for country-specific jobs. That is another possibility. Still that is
another email-list to check everyday to see what countries are the ones
advertising and if maybe the nationality I have matches the ads of the day.
So the solution might simply be that the emails specify very clearly and
early on (subject if possible) WHERE the job IS (sometimes is not in the
subject, no even in the body, and this is very important) and NATIONALITY
requirements (if any). If the job is country specific (and this is specified
in the subject), and one does not have the requirement simply move on to the
Thank you! Chau!
