One of my biggest complaints about the concept of a resume is that you only update it when you need a job.
If you only update your job or project history when your looking for a job, its going to go through quite a "fabrication" process.
It won't represent what happened, how you felt, and all the details of the moment won't be there.
I was building a prototype API developer area powered by Elance API
today, while designing the developers detail page I listed the last 5 jobs for their Elance Profile.
This made me think about the recent release of Stack Overflows
, Careers 2.0
developer resume tool.
Social networks like LinkedIn, and developer tools like Github
are quickly become a real-time source of project and job history for developers.
I'm creating a new projects
page where I'm going to try and list projects I develop in real-time. I'm going to try and work my project history into my blogging schedule as much as I can.
