Gaps With Career Sites

Having spent a goodly amount of time the past few years unemployed, I've utilized all the major "career" sites a great deal.  One thing I've lamented for years: their focus on job search. Now, that's a particularly important tool and need, but there's so much more to managing one's career. Guidance on ways to maximize your current role, how to navigate advancement/promotion, whether you'd do well as a manager, or should focus on being an individual contributor...all these things, and more, would be helpful. Another good thing that would be accomplished by such content: bringing in and audience greater than the job-seeker/recruiter crowd. Expanding the value of the site could well make for richer and more dynamic engagement. And, perhaps, more people would be encouraged to manage their careers better, outside of crisis mode.
