Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I click on the supplied link, also copy and paste it into the address bar, and it takes me to my profile, but there is no indication that anything has changed. How can I be sure the verification is successful?

I just went through this process this morning and was super confused too.

If you click the link in the email, it just takes you to the careers site home page. I presumed that meant the link wasn't correct, but...

It appears to me that the next time that you log in and view your profile, you'll get the standard stackoverflow style "banner" across the top that says "Thank you for verifying your email address".

So it looks like you might either have to view your profile, or maybe log out and log back in and view your profile to verify?
