similar question: http://meta.serverfault.com/questions/1666/eliminate-the-career-tag

I have been searching serverfault, security.stackexchange, programmers.stackexchange, workplace.stackexchange for the past week for career questions, but none of these site accept career questions in the faq.

I have asked several questions already, which have been closed.

I finally found a useful answer at What are some IT jobs where you don't sit at a desk for 8-10hrs a day? but that was also closed.

So if career questions aren't acceptable on any of these stackexchange sites

  1. why does the even exist?
  2. why not a site where career questions can be asked?
  3. if you sum all the career questions across sites, how many are there?
  • Some career style questions might be appropriate over on workplace. Most others are probably more appropriate for places like LOPSA reddit/r/sysadmin.

  1. Because people who have the privilege created it before we decided that questions are really Not Constructive and we haven't gotten round to tidying it up. Thanks for bringing it to our attention again.
  2. If you really want one go to Area 51.
  3. >49.

    We do have a stack exchange site where career questions can be asked - The Workplace. (Not for "career advice", but great for "How should I deal with this backbiting office politicking that goes on in the working world?")
