Ok, so this request for vanity URLs and my own response about career.SO's offer of vanity URLs got me thinking...

What about offering standardized flair for our CVs on careers.SO? I don't mean the flair displayed on the CV to our SO accounts, I mean offering flair that links to our CV.

I know it's probably stupid, but I figure a link from a blog has more value to your CV than it does to your SO profile. Unless you prefer anonymity, of course.

So... I dunno. Just an idea? Thought I'd throw it out and see what everyone thought about it.

Wouldn't the flair simply be a plain ol' hyperlink to your public CV URL?

I really feel careers is different enough that it shouldn't be confusable with our existing site flairs.

    I guess I didn't envision it as being identical to the existing flairs, just as something along the same lines.
