Sunday Video: Marissa Mayer on process, hiring and Yahoo!
Yahoo!'s announcement last week that it tapped long-time Google executive Marissa Mayer to take over as president and CEO dominated the headlines. Along with it, came in-depth looks at Mayer and, unexpectedly, more news on the new tech industry leader.
"I definitely think what drives technology companies is the people; because in a technology company it's always about what are you going to do next," Mayer told Rose.
In the hour-long interview, a variety of topics are discussed, from Mayer's role in Google to her thoughts on social networks. Among the topics, however, were several that may provide insight into what we'll see from the new Yahoo! chief.

- 21:27 - On hiring
- 50:37 - Typical work day
- 51:21 - What she'll be doing in 10 years
