Sahas Katta built a cool Windows Phone like online resume and next thing he knows he has collected the email addresses of over a hundred Microsoft managers. Maybe they were just testing out the contact form but the guys from the Redmond company were impressed enough that he was contacted with several job offers.
I also got a call at about 12:30 AM PST from a Microsoft recruiter in India. She was quite persistent on relocating me overseas for a position as a Lead UX Manager to work with designers, researchers, engineers, and program/product managers. I declined the offer as I do not plan to leave the San Francisco Bay area, which is still the center of the tech world.
A lot of people are asking to buy the site design as well so they can use it for their own portfolio. I might just open source it at some point when I have time.
Katta’s site was covered by several news blogs which led to a massive amount of hits on his resume. One thing that we can be sure of, is that a lot of people will have their eye on Mr.Katta including us.
