According to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, a lot of people want to work at the tech company.
Speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt, Mayer said the company now gets 12,000 resumes a week -- up dramatically by a factor of five or six.
Since Mayer took the reins of the struggling company in 2012, the former Google(GOOG) executive has hired back a number of ex-Yahoo employees. Over the course of a year, Mayer said 10% of the hires have been ex-Yahoo employees, or "boomerangs," as she called them.
Mayer, who described the company as "the world's largest startup," outlined her strategy to get the company back on the road to success.
She emphasized four major factors for the company: People, products, traffic and revenue.
"You have to get the right people before you can build the right products," Mayer stressed. Apart from hiring ex-Yahoo employees, she has also overseen more than a dozen acquisitions, and says much of Yahoo's(YHOO) focus will be on mobile growth.

But don't expect a quick turnaround. When asked about growth strategy, Mayer said the company is focused on investing in the long term.
