Are questions about asking career advice and opportunities removed ? I have seen such some question with up votes and answers, while other are down voted and removed. Are there particular career related questions which are valid ?
I'm not actually going to go through with it, but I started on a question with the title "What are the best careers for math doctorates?" This message came up:
We prefer questions that can be answered, not just discussed.
A few seconds later this other message came up:
The question you're asking appears subjective and is likely to be closed.
You can prove or disprove a certain equation has solutions (though some questions like that get closed for being "off-topic"—go figure!). You can't really prove what is the best career path for someone with a math doctorate, for example. I think, speaking only for myself, that it would make sense to close a career advice question for being "off-topic." But since there's Academia.SE, then better to migrate that question over there, unless it was something that applied only to mathematicians, and not also, say, economists and fashion designers.
If you're still unsure, go ahead and post your career advice question. Worst that can happen is your reputation score gets dinged a little.
