We keep getting "I want advice on XXXX" types of questions which are all vague and more appropriate for a discussion board - not a Q/A site.
Can we please update the first item under the list of off topic things on the FAQ:
"What should I do?" - "Should I take this job?" - “I need feedback/validation!” - "Please review my resume/CV/Cover Letter"
Questions without a specific problem are suited for discussion boards - not a question/answer site. Generally, these types of questions are relevant only to you and off-topic. Questions which are also useful to other people are on-topic.
As an example, The Workplace often gets questions about whether to accept a job offer. This is relevant only to the asker and not helpful for others. These types of questions should be rephrased into specific components:
- How can I find the total compensation for a job offer?
- How can I ask for additional time to evaluate a job offer?
Note this also replaces the "Please review my resume/CV" item.
This site should not be "Dear Workplace, help me please" anymore than Stack Overflow is "Dear Stack Overflow, give me teh codez."
A great example of this type of 'question'
