Searching for jobs on the Marketforce web site

In case you are not aware, the search feature for Marketforce is not accurate, at least for me. For example, if I indicate a 20 mile radius from my zip code, jobs that are in another town/zip code but are less than 5 miles away do not show up. I have to increase the radius all the way up to 85 miles for them to show up! I have found this to be the case on numerous shops where the location is well within the radius but they do not show up.

This has been a problem for a long time, at least for me. I have reported the issue to Marketforce several times over the past few years and nothing has changed. I just thought I would post this in case others might not be aware and are possibly missing out on shops.

I always leave mine set at 100 miles. If I want to see jobs that are 60 miles away, I have to search that specific city.
I brought this up last month. This can also happen on other platforms, like Shop Metrics and Sassie

I have that problem with some specific areas...I realized there was a couple stores they shop in a town about 20 minutes from me that were not showing up and I actually have to specifically search that zip code to see them.
Yep, I've noticed that the search system is good at searching in one direction up to the number of miles I input, but it's terrible at searching in the other direction for some reason.
Also, I notice that the email I get showing available jobs near me has more shops than the same search on the site. I usually have to do a few different searches to make sure I see everything.
