I assume that "Network Engineer-Los Angeles" means that the job is in LA & telecommuting is not possible. Even if you make a 2nd to confirm that, I would bet a small amount money that some "misguided person" (euphemism) will still ask if s/he can telecommute.

Hi Rick,

You are correct. This person would need to be in either LA or the DC area. That's where our data centers are. Thanks for the reply.
