Essentially every post in career-development is migrated or closed. Is this the purpose of the tag, to make these offtopic questions easy to find and then move? If so, are there other "honeypot" tags, or should there be? If not, should the tag instead trigger a message saying to ask this question elsewhere?
However, be careful posting Career Development questions on Programmers. They are very specific about the questions that are considered on-topic there.
Can I ask career advice questions?
Yes, within reason. Most career advice questions are specific to the poster's situation and run the risk of being closed. Try to generalize your situation into a good subjective question.
Please be aware that we will not delete your career advice question after you receive answers if you change your mind about having asked it. Think carefully before you post a question full of personal or otherwise sensitive information. If you don't want something to be publicly revealed, consider not posting it on StackExchange.
Please note that the following subjects are considered off-topic here:
- What language should I learn next? (Unless you have a specific requirement and don't know which language meets that requirement.)
- What salary/wage should I ask for/expect? (Too localized to your place and time)
- Please critique my resumé. (Unless you have a specific question about a software development part of your resumé. Questions about resumé formatting and style are always off-topic.)
This is my new favorite thing. Let me share it with you!
A picture is worth a thousand words, eh?
Is the [career-development] tag a honeypot?
In other news, looks like we are going to have to deal with 900 flags or so over the weekend.
