Electron Configuration and Hybridization

How do electron configurations and hund's rule come to play when figuring out hybridization?

I'm not too sure what the connection is between these and hybridization. The most direct connection hybridization has is with molecular shape/structure.

Hund's rule is also important as it states that each sublevel must have one electron occupying the orbital before the orbital is occupied by 2 electrons. This ensures that hybridization occurs because if hund's rule were not followed, hybridization may not occur if only p orbitals were filled and not s orbitals.
