GIT PROFILE AND OPEN-SOURCE CONTRIBUTION - WHY IS IT IMPORTANT IN YOUR GLOBAL TALENT APPLICATION?
Main things recruiters are looking for:
Most importantly, open-source contributions may serve as evidence to prove one of the criteria for your Global Talent application.
For example, to prove one of the most popular optional criteria — a significant contribution to the field — applicants can attach the Git profile with the project’s source code, clearly showing their role. They also have to provide a screenshot of the README file clarifying the project’s point.
An open-source profile may also prove another optional criterion — recognition for work beyond the main occupation. An applicant may have a popular StackOverflow profile and confirm that by showing the number of followers or the number of stars or forks for the GitHub profile. If the candidate is a contributor to an open-source code on GitHub serving educational purposes, for example, the screenshot of the merged pull request will act as a piece of evidence as well.
