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.
