UPS -0.84 % and FedEx Corp. FDX -0.27 % have both raised prices for such bulky items, which don t easily move through their distribution centers, while other carriers such as XPO Logistics Inc.

Stack Overflow, the community site best known for providing answers for all of your random coding questions, also has a thriving jobs board and provides services to employers looking to hire developers.Today, the team is expanding the jobs side of its business with the launch of Developer Story, a new kind of resume that aims to free developers from the shackles of the traditional resume.As Stack Overflow VP of Community Product Jay Hanlon told me, in working with potential employers, the team realized that regular resumes put their emphasis on job titles, schools and degrees — but that doesn t always work for developers.According to Stack Overflow s latest survey, the majority of developers don t have degrees in computer science, for example.The things you ve achieved, though, tend to be hidden in tiny bullets underneath those headers.So the idea with Developer Story is to pull out your achievements — the problems you ve solved, the open source projects you ve contributed to, the apps you ve written — and highlight those.
