Hey Everyone,

Firstly, welcome to all our new subscribers this week! A late surge over the weekend has seen us blast through the 600 barrier to hit 636. We’ve now got recruiters & talent folks from companies such as Netflix, Amazon, Microsoft, Palantir, Facebook and many others sharing and consuming On Hiring’s weekly brainfood! Thanks everyone for your support, especially to OH subscribers Matt Bradburn and Mark Lundgrenfor the extra promo this week.

Secondly, the big news this week: we’re taking the OH community to livestream! I’ve got 4 guest slots on the RecruiterZone Crowdcast channel over the next month so the OH community has got no better opportunity to connect and talk hiring and the future of the planet. First show will kick off this week Wednesday at 15.30 BST with a topic selected from one of the most popular posts in the previous week.

First one coming up Culture Fit: is it just Class Snobbery in disguise?
Sign up and tune in!
