Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the 50th (!) issue of On Hiring.

When I started this project just under a year ago, it never occurred to me that we’d ever make this type of milestone. Thank you all for your kind messages, tweets, public shout outs and the rest – it is great to see so many in our industry get value from what we’re doing here and it’s super motivating for me to continue.

Hope you enjoy this edition – we got more great writing from First Round, great research from StackOverflow, a really funny / alarming twitter bot to follow and some great tips on how to be a better writer of email. Carry on folks!

Big shout out to:
Balazs Paroczay, David Green, Adam Bolton, Neil Foames, Neil Gunning, Katrin Kroll, James Ellis, Amy Wolcott, Felix Wetzel, Rachael Moss, Katharina Yombi, Alexander Tonelli, Jack Cox, Jonathan Long, Omar de Bary, Matt Bradburn and Tom Pyle for your public endorsements last week – I really appreciate it and it makes a huge difference!

Can you help too?
