re: [ASKDEV] How to approach people online for asking career related advice? VIEW POST


The way you have written this question is fine. People are complex and you cannot generalize how people would respond to queries.

I look if the person seeking my help is genuine. Let's say it's a technical help I would see if the person has tried to do some research before approaching. I do not like to help people who refuse to read the first link on Google that answer's their question.

While it is true that everyone has to start somewhere and noob questions are not stupid, but the person who seeks help must also be willing to take effort to earn it.

Example: Are you a person who dumps a stack trace and expects someone to help or are you a person who atleast takes time to frame the question with relevant explaination.
