    Default Where should I put “on JobsDB”?

    Hi,

    Question:
    Where should I put “on JobsDB”?

    Sentence1:
    In response to your job posting for an Officer (JFF: 000222) on JobsDB, I have attached my CV for your consideration.

    Sentence2:
    In response to your job posting on JobsDB for an Officer (JFF: 000222), I have attached my CV for your consideration.

    Sentence3:
    Other better option

    Thanks

    I would use sentence 2. Sentence 1 looks as if the ad was for "an Officer on JobsDB", as if that were the job title. That's not the case.

    I would not use "job posting".

    In response to your advert on JobsDB for an Officer (ref: JFF 000222), I attach my CV and covering letter for your consideration.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
