The First Recruiter In YCombinator?

I just submitted an application to join YCombinator's Winter 2010 session. For those of you who don't know what YCombinator is, here's a quote directly from their website...

Y Combinator is a new kind of venture firm specializing in funding early stage startups. We help startups through what is for many the hardest step, from idea to company.


For those of you who don't know, I've been working on a recruiting startup idea for about a year now. The process of learning how to build the foundation for a really, really big idea has a lot of moving parts. It took a lot of time, energy, and conversations with smart people to get to the point where I was ready to build the next big thing.

I'm not super ready to talk about what the idea is on this blog, but I can tell you that it'd be really hard to pull off a big recruiting startup if you weren't a recruiter. It'll be interesting to see if YCombinator agrees.
