DEV Community


Discussion on: Why do employers check job candidates' GitHub profiles?

funny thing, a few weeks ago i wrote back a company who want me to lease their developer. i am really thinking about that, because it could really help to scale.

i received a CV file. a normal CV only makes me think "what should i do with that?". i don't care which school a person visited, if the person has a degree or not. there are really awesome delevopers out there which have no degree or not even a basic graduation and there are persons which have multiple academic titles but which are not able to do basic git branching (and are not willing to learn and do it)
a gitlab or github profile would helped me much more. beeing a developer myself i would like to see code of the person. read some discussions, read issues the person raised.
