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

What is the best forum to go to for programming person-specific career advice in a discussion format (not suitable for SO)?

Aren't all Overflow-style sites explicitly non-discussion oriented? – user142588 Feb 10 '10 at 19:15
No, not explicitly. While the Stack Overflow engine doesn't really support many-to-many discussions (i.e. threaded), the prohibition against subjective questions is purely an administrative decision in the operation of Stack Overflow, not the StackExchange engine itself. StackExchange sites could just as easily create a site to vote up the best opinions. Certainly, a site focused on "career advice" would allow more career-oriented topics than the purely "programming related" site here. And career advice is going to be inherently more subjective than most programming questions, anyway. – Robert Cartaino Feb 10 '10 at 19:53
