I have now discovered that you can't be an employer and an employee. However, this wasn't at all clear from the website and I only discovered it after searching and finding questions about it.
Before discovering the limitation I recalled seeing links to the employer view on the home page, so I tried logging out and clicking the "We're Hiring" button on the unauthenticated user's home page. This took me through my OpenID login pages and dropped me back at my CV.
Would it not make sense to:
- Add a "tab" to the Employee site that says "We're Hiring" but then explains to the user that to be an employer you need to log in with a different account (and perhaps provide links on that page to make the process quick and easy)
- When someone logs in via the homepage's "We're Hiring" and is registered as an Employee give them a message telling them why they're seeing their CV again.
I'm totally cool with the limitation, but the user experience surrounding that limitation could be better. It shouldn't require a trip to meta.stackoverflow.com in order to find out that this limitation exists.
