Discussion on: As recruiters, what do you want to see on a GitHub profile readme ?

As a hiring manager I go to someone's Github profile to see which projects they've contributed to, what role they played, and the scope and quality of their work.

  • Do the projects correlate in any way to the work they'd be doing at my company? Are they solving similar problems as they would run into working for me?
  • Are they fixing bugs or implementing whole features?
  • Are they contributing in other ways to projects, e.g. coordinating tasks or answering support tickets?

Of course beyond the profile I look into the quality of code commits and documentation, etc.
