I'm aware that this topic has been discussed before, and didn't have much support, but I think it's worth at least a revisit, even only if to confirm the current status.
- Is career advice be off-topic if related to academic pursuits re: professional opportunities?
Here specifically questions such as "What classes to take to get this job?"
If the above question is on-topic, is it worth considering allowing professional advice in general?
Questions might involve sub-fields that are hot at any given time, industry trends, interview process (what to expect), etc. Types of roles that exist in organizations, and potentially even pay-scales.
This community is made up of people studying and working in the AI field, in the private sector and academia. Others may have recently gone through the interview process. This constitutes a cluster with field specific knowledge, as opposed to the stacks that deal with this in general.
Broadening the scope could be helpful in attracting new users, who might subsequently contribute. (My own participation on Stack in general is a product of having gotten some info I needed several years ago.)
All questions and answers are dated so visitors can see how current the information is.
We are a general AI community, so I think this subject is potentially in scope, and could expand our utility.
