Not Smarter Than A 5th Grader

As you know, I lost my job in November. I'm still looking for a replacement position. When job hunting this week, I saw the following listing:
FL - Job located in Fresno, California
(Nearby)

I realize my geography knowledge is weak. Very weak. Embarrassingly weak. But even I know that California is not nearby Florida. If that is considered close enough for a commute, how far away does the job have to be to be considered notably distant?

Perhaps CareerBuilder should invest in Google Maps or MapQuest services?

Maybe the company is based in Orlando but the available position is in their CA location???? As for the "Nearby"...don't know what they are referring to???
