Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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


In the Experience section of my Stack Overflow CV, there's no place for me to put in jobs that have lasted less than a year (such as short term contracts).

Right now if I put a three month contract in, it makes it seem like I was employed there for an entire year, instead of 3 months.

It's pretty standard to have something like one of the three following headers for a job on your CV:

June 2008 - September 2008 (3-month Contract)
June 2008 - September 2008 (Contract)
June 2008 - September 2008

Feature Request

Add the ability to narrow down employment to Month/Year, and not just Year.

You can already do this -- it's a free-form field with no validation.

I'll add this as example text so it is clearer that this is OK.

The reason i thought you couldn't was that the box didn't seem to allow Month to be inserted; just year. – George Stocker Oct 9 '09 at 11:14
