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

On the Careers site my CV is a placeholder - something I filled out just enough so the system would let me file at the $29/3 year deal. I've been planning on working on it before exposing it on the site, but according to the site an employer has already viewed the page:

Seeing as the number for "CV Search Hits" is 0, I'm assuming that my CV can be viewed directly through a URL bypassing the search. If this is true, then I consider it a bug. If a CV isn't searchable, it shouldn't be able to be seen by employers at all.

@Maxim: those are the total number of employers and searches performed. they should be the same for everyone. – Kyle Cronin Nov 19 '09 at 4:59

There was a minor issue with the way we were recording the history. This has been resolved.

so does this mean that my CV wasn't actually viewed? – Kyle Cronin Nov 19 '09 at 14:13

I disagree. You might not want to make your CV searchable, but also want to be able to send the url directly to specific employers.

Though I guess that's a different thing than employers registered in the system stumbling across your CV on their own, which seems to be what happened here.

That could be useful, if the link would work for any employer, not just those on, and if you could opt-in, but in this case it's definitely a bug. I suspect that the CVs are numbered like the user accounts on SO, and I also suspect that I have a very low number, due to the fact that I registered about 10 seconds after it was announced at Boston DevDays. – Kyle Cronin Nov 19 '09 at 4:34
That desperate for a new job, huh? ;) – Joel Coehoorn Nov 19 '09 at 13:32
uh, know anyone that's hiring? :-) – Kyle Cronin Nov 19 '09 at 14:06
