What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I have an account on http://careers.stackoverflow.com/. I find that all my accounts on StackExchange.com are linked except http://careers.stackoverflow.com/.

  • Is any link given to my career profile from any of my accounts?
  • Is carrer.so account owned by StackExchange?

If user have career account then there should be link from all accounts.(I think so.)

If it is shown in user profile(by default private status to only logged in user) so it will be easy to access career.so acoount. If user want to show on profile, then user will set public status.

There is linking from career.so account to all SE accounts(as per interest which account want to show). Then why not just show link of career.so account in user profile. I am not saying it should be public. But it can be privately shown to user.(if it is managed by SE) enter image description here

This question is now different than it was before. You've turned it into a feature request which makes my answer (and any others that might have bee posted) partially redundant - this should have been another question. –  Grant Thomas Mar 20 '12 at 8:36
    
Should I make another question? I wanted to know about feature. But that feature doesn't exists. That's why I made it feature-request. –  Somnath Muluk Mar 20 '12 at 8:47

You don't, it finds you.

These systems, although they seem 'connected' in terms of pulling data through to Careers, are distinctly different. That is to say, Careers is able to 'poll' your Stack Exchange network accounts, but your Careers account is not a Stack Exchange network account per se (actually, technically behind the scenes it could well be - bot not in terms of the facet through which it is exposed).

If you want to expose your Careers account in your Stack Exchange profiles then you could always place a link to it in the 'About' section of said profiles (and use the 'copy to all' feature to copy it network wide if you wish to do so.)

Why does site name career.stackoverflow.com? –  Somnath Muluk Mar 19 '12 at 13:58

@Somnath Muluk: Because it's a site for programming jobs, and careers.programmers.stackexchange.com isn't as catchy. (It pre-dates Programmers SE anyway.) –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 19 '12 at 14:31
