Where should I address questions such as "What kind of tasks do people specializing in FEM work on?" or "Do you need to know a lot about computer architecture to work with large scale optimization?" and similar questions regarding the jobs/careers of mathematicians in industry? They're not about mathematics so they don't belong here, but they don't belong in meta either. Academia seems like a stretch as well.

There must be loads of people dying to get answers to questions like these (I know I am). Is there a site for such questions?

    $\begingroup$ If people are dying, surely it can't be from lack of answers about mathematicians in the industry. And if there are people dying from that, surely it can't be more than a handful of them. :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 27 '14 at 14:00

    $\begingroup$ A handful of REALLY tiny people might be a very large number. $\endgroup$ – Benjamin Lindqvist Dec 27 '14 at 14:12

    $\begingroup$ FEM and various large-scale computational issues are usually found on Computational Science. You may want to investigate first whether they will consider your question appropriate for their site. Look around the site, read the Help Center on-topic page, maybe ask on their Meta. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Dec 28 '14 at 9:04
