Really interesting! This is way more fun than LinkedIn. I think I feel like I need more suggestions - it asks me "What I do and how I work" - but that makes me feeling torn about what to include. A photo of the Kickstarter logo because I work here? A photo of one of the projects I recently worked on here? A photo of my notebook that I write in? All of them?

Yesterday I received an email with the question, "What was your last job before joining your current team?" linking to a collection of responses (https://www.somewhere.com/collec...). As an active blogger, I recognize the difficulties most people have writing. I've been following Somewhere for a while and like the direction they're heading. Couple observations: (1) Prompts/questions give people something to write about (2) Constraints increase content creation (each post is limited to 250 char) (3) Collections create a sense of community and seeing your post beside someone else's, makes it feel more discoverable and noticed (4) Visuals capture attention and (arguably) reduce cognitive effort browsing the site.

Welcome and thanks for the secret link, @kathmography! :) How did Somewhere start and how has it changed since then?

Job sites are - if you ask me - horrible. It's all about job titles and no one ever talks about what really matters - the people working for companies. We've learned a lot along the way: Especially that when people are open about who they are and what matters to them, it shows them in a light that is hard to compete with. A CV doesn't say much - it's a summary of things you've done in the past. What's so different about yours and the one of the next applicant? Also, from the company's point of view, if you want to attract amazing people, you better show who they would get to work with. That's where Somewhere's positioned. It's a community of work enthusiasts.
