If you only update your job or project history when your looking for a job, its going to go through quite a “fabrication” process.
It won’t represent what happened, how you felt, and all the details of the moment won’t be there.
I was building a prototype API developer area powered by Elance API today, while designing the developers detail page I listed the last 5 jobs for their Elance Profile.
Social networks like LinkedIn, and developer tools like Github are quickly become a real-time source of project and job history for developers.
I’m creating a new projects page where I’m going to try and list projects I develop in real-time. I’m going to try and work my project history into my blogging schedule as much as I can.
