Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed an interesting take on his hiring practises recently.
Speaking at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this week, the world's richest technopreneur said: "I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person."
He added: "It's a pretty good test and I think this rule has served me well."
The Telegraph reported that the 30-year-old billionaire gave the example of Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, who he considers a mentor and "someone who has been instrumental in building Facebook into a business and a healthy organisation."
According to Sky News, there are fewer positions available at Facebook compared to other Silicon Valley firms.
With a company headcount of fewer than 10,000 (Google has 55,000 employees), Zuckerberg said: "The most important thing is to keep your team as small as possible (because) big companies get bloated."
Although the social media giant serves over a billion users in the world, Zuckerberg is adamant on hiring only employees whose values align with the company's.
"Facebook is not a company for everyone in the world," Zuckerberg added.
