As a programmer, I manage my resume on my github pages where can bring many benefits. - eg. make a new branch for a new company, easily add/remove related projects, install google analytics for checking who is interested in me, and so on.
Recently I've needed to submit my resume to several companies. What I surprised is that they, HR people, wanted only pdf/doc formatted resume even they work for software companies. What a silly.
VisualCV can be a proper solution between a old-fashined pdf resume file and too much opened LinkedIn page.
To apply for a Korean company, they usually require a formal photo, SSN, parents' jobs, house income, written self introduction, etc. No kidding. And I have a few years military service experiences as a Korean army that might be not related with software engineering.
So for those reasons, I had to split branches to appeal myself to diverse companies properly. I don't want to make companies confused with unnecessary info.
