I agree with Guru. In fact, I'd like to see similar info on all job
announcements. For example, do jobs offered in the UK or Germany
require EC citizenship? Is relocation assistance available--either
internationally or nationally? That is, if I live in Chicago and see
an ad for a job in Colorado Springs, it'd be nice (and
Internet-courteous) to determine from the online ad whether relocation
assistance exists. Otherwise, the online ad is just a cruel tease.

If no relocation assistance is possible, if the only people who should
apply are those who live near the prospective employer (PE), then
[meiner Meinung nach] the PE should only advertise locally.

Just a thought....
