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

If I've created and saved my CV but haven't filed it, can anyone see it?

Nobody can see it but you -- until you:

a) make it public (free, not yet implemented, but coming soon)


b) file it and make it searchable by employers ($29 / 3 years)

These are both off by default, so your CV is always 100% private until you decide it isn't.

Also, once you make a CV searchable by employers, you have the option to hide it again, so it can't be seen.

will a public CV be searchable by employers? – a_m0d Oct 12 '09 at 7:03
it's public web info, so it's searchable by anyone. However, there will be no indication of whether you're actually looking for work or not; that's the key distinction. We'll elaborate on this on the next podcast. – Jeff Atwood Oct 12 '09 at 8:15
