e-Glory, of course.

Can you get a job with e-glory? Perhaps. Perhaps not. But at the end of the day, even if you're unemployed, and down to your last dollar, and your best girl is through with you...

By golly you've still got your stackoverflow rep :D

  • what is e-Glory? What is golly?

    e-glory is online reputation.... golly is just an expression. So what does 'Jitendra" mean? Feb 29, 2012 at 8:17

Most people using SO as a hiring point would most likely be looking at the quality of the answers you give and not just what big number is next to your name.
