GitHub is Not Your Resume

Your resume is your resume. 

Your released apps are your resume. 

Your released sites are your resume. 

Your published blog posts are your resume.

Your contributions to widely used open source software, some of which might be hosted on GitHub, are your resume. 

Your public repo that you're the sole contributor to and isn't a shipping product is not your resume

Hiring managers screening applicants don't have time to pull 3+ repos, attempt to compile them, and then read the source to see what a 10x dev/rockstar/ninja/special snowflake you are.
