What should our FAQ contain?

Realizing that many of the early members are related to software or IT, I've seen questions like this one come up that ask for specific advice regarding career paths, that are industry-specific. I feel that these are off-topic, especially in this case because the question I reference already has an SE site dedicated to matters of programmer professional life.

So, should the FAQ advise OP's to keep their questions industry neutral when possible? I have no issue with users asking questions regarding issues that are only exist within a given industry, but generic questions like, "What are my career path options given that I am [insert job title]," I would argue, are off-topic and/or too localized, because they don't have to do with the workplace, but a specific person and career path.
