Even though winter is well on its way in our part of the world, it’s looking like it’s going to be many months before the release of season 8 of Game of Thrones (noooooooooooooo!).
I don’t know about you, but we here at Vidyard are in some serious GoT withdrawal. To tide us over in the meantime, we’ve imagined what it would be like if we worked alongside the characters from GoT.
And, as we’ve discovered, some of our favorite Game of Thrones characters have characteristics that would make them uniquely suited for roles in Marketing. Here’s what we would hire each of them for if they decided to apply to work with us!
Cue music! Dun dun da da dun dun da da dun dun da da dun dun…
(Spoilers ahead. Consider yourself warned.)
Resume: Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, The King in the North
What we’d hire him for – CMO
Contrary to popular belief, Jon Snow does know some things. In fact, he’s a natural leader whose sincerity, authenticity, and dedication to those he leads cause people to rally around him in support. Most importantly, he’s not afraid to challenge the status quo and shake things up when they aren’t working. We think his thoughtful leadership style and innovative attitude would make him a great addition to any executive team!
Resume: Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons
What we’d hire her for – Demand Generation
If there’s anything Daenerys is good at, it’s traveling the world and rallying allies to her cause. We’re confident she would be just as successful generating leads for a sales team as she was convincing an entire army of Unsullied and a Dothraki horde to pledge their undying allegiance to her.
Resume: Being a motherf***ing dragon
What we’d hire him for – Content
While we’re not entirely sure how well he’d collaborate with his teammates, there’s no doubt in our minds that everything Drogon creates would be ~fire~
Resume: A Girl Has No Resume
What we’d hire her for – Digital Marketing
Adventure has a way of following Arya Stark—making her scrappy and resourceful, two traits we think are essential to being a part of any marketing team. Besides, we believe her time serving the many-faced god would give her an edge when it comes to being able to empathize with a range of different customer perspectives. It’s surprising we haven’t hired her already (probably because we haven’t managed to track her down!).
The Three-Eyed Raven
Resume: 300 Year Old Greenseer & Mentor to Brandon Stark
What we’d hire him for – Video Production
If there’s anything the three-eyed raven has demonstrated his skills in, it’s visual storytelling. We think his background in sending messages to Bran through visions and dreams would translate well into a video-production role—and his third eye would give him an edge when it comes to recording the perfect shot. (After all, what is a camera but a kind of third eye?)
Like all good GoT episodes we are leaving this one on a cliffhanger—tune in next week to see who took over as VP of Business Development and the battle to claim the title of BDR…
