If you don't believe me now, you will after this.

We’re living in a time of profound change and upheaval. What we build and spread here and now will impact the world for generations to come.

I'd like to change the world. Who's with me?

Since we bought I Can Has Cheezburger? back in September of 2007, we’ve hired roughly one person per month. And each time we go through the process of recruiting, screening, and hiring, it’s a difficult and laborious process. But I know that hiring is probably the most important part of my job.

The job of screening for the right talent has been recently made harder by 2 factors:

  1. The number of applicants have skyrocketed due to a) the economy and b) our own growth.
  2. The more we become specialized, the harder it gets to find someone with experience.

But frankly, it should be hard.

If you’re looking for top-notch talent — that elusive one-in-a-million candidate — you’ve just got to keep screening, keep recruiting and not lower your standards. Even when you’re growing and hiring, there’s nothing sexy about being an entrepreneur.
