So the thing about corporate culture is...

it ought to reflect what you may can do, and it ought to love and cherish your target market

So, in my company do something.org, we work with young people between 13 and 25

So it makes sense that more than half my team is under the age of 25

The people who work here are like the people who we serve

So, for example, if you're not a smoker...

...you probably shouldn't work at a cigarette company. You know...

If you're a vegan it probably wouldn't make a lot of sense to work at like Boars Head Meats

I mean, I could go on and on.

These are kind of funny

There's a name for you

So you should love social change and you love young people if you work here, and believe that young people matter, if you work at do something

We have three rules when we hire one: would I want to be in a bunker with you?

I'm gonna spend more time with you then I spend my friends and family, so just do I like you or are you a freakshow?

Two, can you hit a home run in your first 90 days?

We're in a very fast moving environment.

I don't have time to hold your hand.

Can you pick stuff up?

Can you learn?

It's a learning environment and can you hit a home run in 90 days?

And three, are you capable of doing something amazing in 46 years?

That doesn't necessarily have to mean here.

It could be somewhere else. But we just want people here who have like that amazing thing in them
