    Ever since I wrote something like this that I share with prospective employers I don’t think I’ve been requested to have a single technical interview. People just sort of rush through the pipeline since it makes certain information that they would run the interview for in the first place freely available. But it means you have to request conversations with relevant teammates more to make sure you get enough information to make an informed decision. It’s pretty nice for making interviewing cheaper, and it’s a refreshing change for people who are used to staring at hundreds of PDF resumes.

      Geez, that’s an impressive and intimidating resume. :)

        If you quit your job for a few years to slack off and occasionally write open source software in a language that nobody uses it turns out it can be a pretty good thing for your career :P

        I don’t have a huge experience in interviewing but I didn’t notice it helped at all, or people would simply maybe look at it but hardly mention it in the actual interview. I’m pretty sure I could’ve just written nothing besides a very basic standard resume.

        Speaking of my own experience looking at CVs: I don’t think that helps too much. I’d look at it but it would be like a small +3/-3 (of 100) and not really relevant if I invite the person for an interview.

        Also if your manager doesn’t remember the good things you did in the last 6-12 months.. I don’t know.. maybe bad manager?

        I love this idea, especially since review season is beginning at work. I’ve just made a brag document and listed some projects. The other sections seem trickier…

          Google makes us do this at least once per year. I’ve always found it really annoying but I can see why it’s useful.
