I don't have a career profile ans I applied yesterday to a job on stackoverflowcareers by entering manually my contact information, covering letter and attaching my resume.

I did not receive a confirmation email that the application had been sent correctly, is that normal?

I don't have any message listed either in my profile.


  • The company I apllied to just checked my LinkeIn account so I guess they received my application. But it would be best if I received a confirmation by email from career that the application was sent.

  • Regarding message in your profile, what do you mean? You said you don't have a Careers profile. Commented Oct 21, 2014 at 12:26
  • When I am logged-in in career I can see on top right corner a button called messages that is empty. I don't have a profile in the way that I don't have enough reputation to have my resume on career, I need to apply on my own.

  • I don't get it... you can be logged in but you don't have a profile? Commented Oct 22, 2014 at 6:26

1 Answer 1


You should get an email confirmation when you submit a job application. If you didn't receive one, please email support at [email protected] and we'll take a look into it.

  • OK I sent the email

  • Alex, can a user be logged in to Careers, but not have a profile? I'm confused by this comment, unless I'm missing something? Commented Oct 22, 2014 at 6:27
  • @ShadowWizard Yes, anybody can create a login, but you need to be invited before you can create a profile.
