You know what would be cool? Coder Profiles & Infographics.
For example, let’s say that you are evaluating software developers. What if their resume was a pie chart of which coding languages, platforms and other technologies they use? Or a bar chart with years experience in particular technologies? How about rankings based on pre-defined categories?
As a hiring manager, I’d LOVE to see that on a developers résumé. If you were a recruiter, how awesome would you look in front of your clients by presenting them with coder data in this format? The data is available on sites like Github and Top Coder, Twitter, etc..
I have a friend whom I’ve mentored to work on this idea so you’ll probably hear more about it from me down the road…
What do you think about this type of information presentation? If interested, I’d be happy to make an intro. My friend could use a great business partner.
