Maybe you sent out your traditional, static resume to a few companies to try to land some interviews. The problem is, 100 other developers did too, and they all have 6 page resumes just like you, packed with the latest eye-catching acronyms and buzz words. SOA, Ajax, GWT, and on and on…
That’s the problem: everyone’s resume looks the same. The employer can’t really tell who’s good and who’s better.
Here’s where CodersCV comes in. Send along a link to your CodersCV to the company as well. When the employer checks it out, she’ll see your porfolio from different views – a timeline, a summary, an interactive resume, and a technology histogram.
She can quickly get a picture of who you are and what you know, and then drill in for more detail when she sees something interesting.
Your CodersCV is also a great talking point in an interview, or just a good way to publish your portfolio. Link to it from LinkedIn, Facebook, or your other online profiles.
By the way, CodersCV is not Monster.com, LinkedIn, or Dice. It’s just a free service for software developers to publish and manage their portfolio online. No more, no less!
