I'm on two student project teams that are pretty much desperate for programmers. We recruit every semester, but get mostly mechanical and electrical engineers to apply (the projects are about 33/33/33 mech/ece/cs). Would a (more detailed) question asking for advice on how to get more programmers to apply be off-topic for SO? If so, where else can I ask?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
It is likely to be off-topic because it's about your particular recruiting problem. If you were to ask a generalized recruiting question, it would have about 30% chance of surviving.
However, there are a huge amount of general career/recruiting questions on SO already. Browse through them, you may get very helpful insight there.
