Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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'm not sure if meta is the right place for this. And I didn't see anything in the history on this specifically.)

Have you ever gotten a job offer/interview through Stack Overflow?

SO would seem like such a logical place to find an expert who might be open to a job offer.

Not that I'm looking (but I guess I'm always kind of looking), but just curious if anyone has been reached out to through their SO account.

It would be pretty cool to read a story like that.

I think this is technically offtopic. See also programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/20407 – BalusC Sep 28 '11 at 16:14

My counter as far is 4 offers of which 2 were pretty serious, but I declined after all. Nothing has beated my current job yet. – BalusC Sep 28 '11 at 16:16

If someone wanted to hire a user on StackOverflow, they'd probably do it through careers.stackoverflow.com where users are actually looking for employment.

Before careers existed, I think the only people to be hired through StackOverflow were actually hired by StackOverflow.
