Jeanne, excellent question. I'd love to learn what CodeRanchers think.
From my perspective, the most important field is the "dream job" requirements, in which developers say what the minimum an employer has to offer them in order to contact them -- interesting work, higher salary, whatever.
Most good developers are already employed. They don't need a new job. But they'll move for a dream job.
Employers know that they should only bother reaching out to the developer if they can offer what he or she demands. (At the same time, developers don't as for too much, because they do want to get offers.)

Jeanne, glad you like the form. Yes, we built it for people who have the "Itch" to find a new job.
For those who don't know whether they have the Itch, I suggest our fun quiz on the FiveYearItch homepage. It asks some offbeat questions to help you figure out whether you're sitting pretty or going crazy in your current job.
