How can I register on careers?

For what sort of questions you can ask, check the FAQ. Register on Careers by going to Careers and clicking "log in" at the top. – darvids0n Feb 3 '12 at 4:20
You'd need an invitation from an existing user or someone on the team. You can request from the team to get invited, though you'll probably need a decent reputation on Stack Overflow to hope to be accepted. – Jeff Mercado Feb 3 '12 at 4:24
@Jeff Mercado: how much reputation required? – Swati Singh Feb 3 '12 at 4:28
The actual amount of rep needed (and other criteria) to trigger the Careers invitation is a tightly-held secret around here. – Aaron Feb 3 '12 at 4:43
Well, to give some sort of ballpark figure, I'm on Careers and my SO rep was probably under 4k when I got the invite. – darvids0n Feb 3 '12 at 4:45
Being in the top 20% of a tag (presuambly not all tags) was how I received an invite- would have had around 2.5k rep then... – davidsleeps Feb 3 '12 at 4:55
Same for me...IIRC, I got the e-mail invitation soon after gettin a silver badge (100 upvotes) for a tag, but that might just be a coincidence; I too think I was little around 3K rep – Damien Pirsy Feb 3 '12 at 6:39
@JeffMercado you'll probably need a decent reputation - that's not mandatory - or at least wasn't mandatory this summer when I got Careers profile having rep about zero. Back then, their materials were giving quite a lot of hints how to make a convincing "cover letter" without SO rep – gnat Feb 3 '12 at 9:40
FWIW I got my invitation saying "We’re impressed by your “java” tag answers on Stack Overflow.". I didn't even have my bronze tag badge at the time! So I guess having answers with upvotes and accepts in a specific tag counts for a lot. – S.L. Barth Feb 9 '12 at 10:52

Stack Overflow profiles are invitation-only, either by us or by your peers. If you haven’t been invited, ask among your friends and colleagues.

Stack Overflow grants new invites to users fitting certain criteria of activity on Stack Exchange sites, including reputation. Participate more, ask good questions, and give good answers. You never know what might appear in your inbox.
