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

I decided to checkout and "create a profile" on careers today, only to find that I can't do that.

If you goto here's what you see:

What’s your next career move? Stack Overflow Careers has the best job listings from great companies, whether you’re looking for opportunities at a start up or Fortune 500. You can search our job listings or create a profile and let employers find you.

Except, it seems that you can't "create a profile" without an invitation. Which is unclear even after going through the pain of logging in.

Contradictory to this is the fact that once logged in you see a section titled "Your profile", with a link that says "view & manage your profile...".

Click the link and you see what looks like an FAQ, where you see the first mention of anything to do with an invite in the form:

How do I request an invite?

Yes, we have a place for that .

So after I've logged in and clicked, "view & manage your profile...", I guess your telling me that I need to request an invite to ... create my profile, which apparently I already have since under the section titled, "Your profile", I've clicked "view & manage your profile...".

Looks like the UI here needs a major clean up.
