It depends on what you mean by "through" - obviously, this is not a job board. A quick check of Stack Overflow Jobs shows that companies are hiring people for QA roles though the network, and they'd be quite silly to use Stack Overflow for hiring for a QA role without looking at the candidate's SQA profile.
Outside of that, I have used my Stack Exchange profile in the interview process multiple times to successful effect. Being able to point to situations where you absorbed someone's problem, applied your personal and professional experience to solving that problem, and received approval from the community at large does tend to be looked upon favorably by employers.
As a moderator I feel obliged to inform you that comments referring to a job search, like "I can help with that, email me at [email protected] for rates" will be promptly removed. (I don't want to be a jerk, it's just... that's not what we're about here!) I would highly recommend, however, putting in your profile that you're available for freelance work.
If I were the person taking a decision on if a candidate fits the requirements for a certain QA position and I had their SQA profile I would certainly examine that but not for the reputation. Because there is a lot of ways actually how one can gain reputation here. Some of them, personally I, consider valuable for my hypothetical employees and some not.
I would rather examine the profile for the following:
I would rather make a decision basing on such kind of analysis.
SQA or any other stack exchange sites won't directly get you a new position/job/project. However, it can be a contributing factor when someone in a company is deciding about whether to hire you or not. Therefore, if you've been active here, it seems a good idea to mention your profile in your CV, or to point out some of your better answers/questions.
