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


I do check.

But I don't rely on it.

It is just another conversation starter for me. It shows me what they might be tinkering with, where their non-work interests lie in the tech realm, what they might be studying.

I don't code review them or pick a part their pull requests to things. I don't use it to stalk them and see code quality.

Just one more thing to have in a conversational interview (so I can skip stupid things like whiteboard coding).
