My question was closed as "Off Topic"*, but I'm confused since the FAQ on the main site doesn't list Career & Job based questions as off-topic. I'm further perplexed since I have no access to the question I asked; I've read about the visibility issue, but I still get a blank screen after I log out and navigate through the "Questions" link (I believe this is what Jeff meant when he stated that one should "navigate to the question URL directly). Also, there are several other questions that are career based, but aren't closed. These very questions are what I reviewed prior to posting to make sure that my question wouldn't fall into the cesspool of miffing inquiries. I'm also quite dumbfounded when seeing that the "career" tag hasn't been relegated to oblivion.
So now my curiosity is piqued, but there's no way for me to really see my feedback, nor is there any way for me to edit & trim my post so as to bring it in line. Are there any other precedents I can review (as in another closed Career question) or is there any official material readily available concerning Career questions?
Also is there any way to work around the visibility issue? Reset my modem, checked the question from another PC, but I still can't see it; I guess I should check from the library, coffee shop, or wherever else I can find internet access? I know I can't participate in it any longer, but I just want to see the feedback for future improvement.
I've had a chance to take a look at the question from another location, while being logged in. Kind of odd that it didn't work at my place, especially since I restarted every device in the network chain; anybody else have any similar experiences?
Now that I've been able to review the comments, I'm still curious as to how it's off-topic in comparison to the other career questions? Not asking to be abrasively smarmy, just wanting to know where the distinction lies between "Personal Finance" & one's "Career", since they're closely tied together (from my limited standpoint). Regardless of the response I get to this meta question, I can acknowledge that my question has been ubiquitously deemed as off-topic, so I must ask: is there a domain in StackExchange where this could be appropriately migrated to? I really do want to get some correlating responses...
*The only reason I know that it's considered "Off-Topic" is because of my Inbox; I can see small snippets of the comments made through there.
