re: Why do employers check job candidates' GitHub profiles? VIEW POST


Github profiles are nice, but not consequential, to a hiring. If you are abusive on Github, that is definitely a red flag. Pretty much the same way as a racist Twitter account. A Github account, and subsequent scrutiny is valuable to us as employers because it reveals how this person solves intra-personal disputes. Now, that is not the only criteria, but a damn good peek at your qualities. I don't want to expose my trusted employees to a megalomaniac cunt.
