Game of Thrones is back, and we at The Starr Conspiracy could not be more excited (we’re kinda big fans). In celebration of the return of one of our favorite shows, we’ve put together the five reasons King’s Landing needs an HR director. (There are probably spoilers in here somewhere, but we’re too excited to care.) Read on, friends, for the night is dark and full of HR violations.
These are dark days in Silicon Valley. A chill wind blows through the incubators of Palo Alto and in the canyons of SOMA in San Francisco. Just last Thursday, The Wall Street Journal told us that the sky is falling with startup investors hitting the brakes. This on the heels of the previous week’s CBInsights report, which said basically the same thing. And neither of those were the most terrifying story that I read recently. This was: The next hot job in Silicon Valley is for poets. Just think — someone will be really proud they earned their MFA from Middlebury when Howdy the Slackbot goes all T-800 on some office somewhere. Winter is coming.
HR people usually get a bad rap in film and television. At The Starr Conspiracy, we happen to love HR people, but it’s still fun to laugh along with some of our favorite characters.
