You can add badges to your profile page by clicking on the badges tab. This allows you to show other members where your skills and interests lie.
As a general rule of thumb you can select a badge if you have been working full time for 2 years in that area.
Being self regulated I wouldn't employ anyone based on the badges they select so treat it with a grain of salt.
I've added badges for drinks of choice such as coffee, tea and beer so people new to web development can still select badges if they wish. Feel free to offer suggestions of other badges that could be added at a later date.
