How can a westerner land an IT job in a third world country? appears well on its way to closure. Some reasons for closing this specific question appear in this meta question. However, I wish to address one specific comment on the actual question:
I also think that this isn't about the workplace, it's about finding jobs (or to say it another way, the job "marketplace"), which is off-topic in my opinion.
I disagree with this particular reason for closure as off-topic. The job search, hiring practices, and the like seem like good questions for this site so long as the questions are otherwise good. Another way to look at this is that career-oriented questions that otherwise meet the guidelines for good questions should be welcome here (I think).
What say you? Agree? Disagree? Should we include something about the job search process specifically in our list of what is on topic? Are there certain job-search- or career-related questions that we specifically do not want?
