Re: Open Source, Open Resume
Thanks, zerox. And I agree, I don't think this approach is for everyone or every employer. Nor is it a quick fix for someone currently on the job market. But I definitely see the upside here for IT pros (devs especially) with open source skills/interests and companies that need people with experience in Hadoop, Linux, etc. One of the things that appeals to me about the concept is that it's a potential solution to the timeless "can't get the job without the experience, can't get the experience without the job" problem faced by students, young professionals, or experienced folks looking to develop new skills in areas like big data, cloud, etc.
Speaking of timeless problems: It also seems like hiring managers should like this if for no other reason than it's tough to "enhance" your open source credentials... not so for imaginative resume writers that oversell their qualifications.
