One of the things people do is speak at conferences, guest lectures, devdays, etc.

I would like the ability to denote that kind of accomplishment on careers.

In the general case, it would be useful if there was a kind of list of 'one-off' achievements that could be described. E.g., "I got the chief pony groomer award at TXI Studios"

Sounds like the freeform fields available on the CV already.

Maybe you're looking to have a separate box to hold "random achievements"? I'd stick them in the "what else do you want to brag about yourself" box, myself. (aka "projects and links")

YOU GOT THE CHIEF PONY GROO...

oh.

But seriously, the "projects and links" area should be OK for this.

  • I'm not so sure about this. For example, If I was a school winner in an Invitational Mathematics Competition, that's not really a project... Nov 14, 2009 at 6:47
  • Don't make them rename "Projects and Links" to Misc" or "Other" ;) Mar 3, 2011 at 18:53

    @Danny Tuppeny -- You can add headers to the Projects and Links area using Markdown, but it looks a little funky as it is not quite lined up with the other main headers. I added a Papers and Publications section at the end of my "Background". It looks like this: careers.stackoverflow.com/cv/publish/11686
