somehow "U.S. only" showed up in my job feed. I don't know how to get rid of it, and every time I do a search it's showing U.S. only jobs. If I turn it off, it turns itself back on (times a million...then I saw it in my job feed). Does anyone know to make it go away?
There's no need to post the same question twice.
Re job feed - you don't have to click on the "USA only" icon - it's there for those who want to search using that parameter. Your regular job feed is still there.
sorry, posting twice was an accident. I did not show post going thru first time.
I know I don't have to click the U.S. only. What I'm saying is - even if I don't click (i.e. activate) it, it shows up as a filter in any job search I do, per below, and if I turn it off it turns back on immediately.
I know that doesn't solve your issue: but non-US freelancers are getting job recommendations that include US-only jobs that they then cannot access & apply to.
Meaning: your job pool is a lot bigger than that of non-US residents - that is, unless you're ONLY shown US-only jobs.
Yes, several of us have reported the "stuck on US" glitch. If you turn it off and refresh or click on a job and go back, the filter again defaults to US only. OP, you can save jobs that you are interested in (while doing your search with US jobs option off). Then go look at them individually in your saved jobs file. Otherwise, I think it is a known glitch waiting for a fix.
At this time there isn’t a way to change the default. This toggle is a new feature, designed to make the location filter easier to find and to turn on and off. We welcome feedback on this new design, and I’ll be sure to relay your comments to the team.
