Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I really like the metrics at the bottom of my job search home page on Careers. It'd be really nifty if I could compare to some site-wide averages so I know when/if I need to spend some time polishing my CV.

Really? Planned? That's awesome! I'm actually a little surprised, because giving this information to users means you also give it to employers, which means you show your hand a bit about the quality of your system. I guess the goal is to use that as proof that the quality is high. :) – Gaius Oct 14 '09 at 22:31

There are a few things that would be interesting (if they were anonymous):

  • Success rate for members
  • Percentage of members selected with 1-4 years of experience
  • Percentage of members that have a Computer Science Degree (as opposed to a lighter degree like 'Computer Information Systems)
  • Average length of CV
  • length that has the highest rate of getting a job (average)
  • Number of times CV appears in a search (but not selected for interview)

As opposed to a 'Creative Literature' degree, too. – Dan Rosenstark Mar 1 '10 at 14:54

This isn't planned right now. If you'd like to see it, go ahead and vote it up. You can see the completeness score which tells you a bunch of things you should add to your profile.
