This question seems pretty opinion based to me, however, I was a bit hesitant to close it initially (since it was well-framed). @NorbertSchuch mentioned that we might create a
[career-advice] tag for such questions, but I'm not sure we would want such a tag on our site.
In my experience, such tags tend to be very vague and often attract extremely "opinion-based" questions. Any comments? Also, should we entertain career-advice questions on our site?
