I have an account on Stack Overflow and I also have a Stack Overflow Careers profile.

My problem is that I cannot edit my careers profile.

I cannot add new answers.

I want to change from passive to active candidate, but I cannot.

What do I do?

  • We need more details. What happens when you try to edit? Do you get errors? If not, what you mean by "can't edit" exactly? To get help, you must provide more details. – Shadow The Burning Wizard Sep 20 '15 at 14:08
  • @ShadowWizard When I click on add to add an answer,nothing happens. – Sumeet Sep 20 '15 at 14:19
  • @ShadowWizard When I click on looling for a job radio button, nothing it prints in red the word error below the radio button. – Sumeet Sep 20 '15 at 14:20
  • @ShadowWizard The things that I can edit, allow me to edit but hitting the save button does nothing. – Sumeet Sep 20 '15 at 14:22

    Sounds like client side errors. What browser you have? What OS? Please edit your question with those details, if you see error in the browser's Console also paste it. – Shadow The Burning Wizard Sep 20 '15 at 14:22
  • @Dante I kinda suspect a client side issue... Use a different browser and try edit, see what happens. – HackerKarma Sep 20 '15 at 14:26
  • @ShadowWizard Thank you very much,changing the browser did work. – Sumeet Sep 20 '15 at 14:29
  • @Dante just curious, what browser was it? Please share, so that others with same problems will know not to use it for Careers. (and who knows, maybe the team will adjust the site at some point to support it) – Shadow The Burning Wizard Sep 20 '15 at 14:30
  • Also, you can do that as a self-answer, otherwise I'll write one myself so that the solution won't be buried down in comments only. – Shadow The Burning Wizard Sep 20 '15 at 14:31
  • @ShadowWizard go ahead. – Sumeet Sep 20 '15 at 14:55
  • OK, but still better know what browser... unless you prefer to keep it for yourself for some reason, which is also fine. – Shadow The Burning Wizard Sep 20 '15 at 14:56

The Careers site is using some JavaScript to perform certain actions.

Since JavaScript is client side, it might not work in some browsers, and thus break some actions.

Before using Careers, make sure to go over Which browsers are officially supported, and what else do I need? and see your browser is supported and that you have everything that is needed.
