Is there a way to ask some of the old timers on here for career advice? I'm looking to discuss with someone on here a method for picking career path within EE based on skill set and interest...

It's not really an appropriate question for meta but I know it's not an appropriate question for the forums.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Kevin Yes, that is what I meant. I guess I'll just try to hang out in the chat room or something \$\endgroup\$

Career advice isn't a good fit for the main site. Thanks for recognizing that, and bringing this here.

At present, we don't have a good location for Q&A about electrical engineering careers. I don't think that this fits in well as a tag (because it's off topic for the site), I doubt that it would survive as a site on its own, and careers.stackoverflow.com isn't what you're looking for.

Your best option, then, (especially since you said "discussion") is going to be to bring it to Chat. The format is different, and traffic is lower, but most anything goes there.
