Yahoo CEO Gets Internal Flak For Rigorous Hiring Standards

Considering the string of losers this company has had at the helm over the last few years, I think "rigorous hiring standards" might be just what Yahoo needs.

Yahoo Inc Chief Executive Marissa Mayer was asked at an all-staff meeting several weeks ago whether her rigorous hiring practices had caused the company to miss out on top engineering talent in Silicon Valley's hyper-competitive job market. Mayer dismissed the complaint that she had refused good candidates because they did not have degrees from prestigious universities, and instead she challenged her staff to get better at recruiting.
