This question already has an answer here:
I work in academia, as a lecturer, teaching computer programming and I am thinking of getting hired at a software firm. I was thinking to put in my CV my StackOverflow account, including how many reputation points I have (391 at the time of writing this post), as another proof of my competence.
Is it a good idea to do this? Does it mean anything to the recruiter, even if he didn't hear of this site before? Or should I omit it, because, unknowingly, I am giving him reasons to disqualify me?
