I am creating a resumé. I want to know whether mentioning stackoverflow profile counts for much in terms of interview factors, e.g. showing my knowledgeability and performance.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
It entirely depends on the person who is going to interview you, I guess. And of course, what your profile looks like. In general, Stack Overflow has become a very well-known resource over the past years - especially in the US, there is a good chance your interviewer knows the site.
If you are referring to your current Stack Overflow profile, I'd say it won't impress a recruiter much in it current state - it contains 4 questions, one of them downvoted, and only one answer that, while probably helpful, doesn't help prove that you are a knowledgeable person.
Currently the answer is No, as Pekka already said.
However, if and when you will gain enough reputation you will be invited to create a professional profile here. ( Stack Overflow Careers site)
This can be introduced in job interviews and will even help you find jobs, pretty similar to LinkedIn.
