Yet Another Unique Tech Startup Opportunity Pt. 1
Antoine and Zora

Antoine: I come bearing good news, fellow Co-CEO!
Zora: You don’t need to say “Co-CEO”. Just “CEO” is fine. “Fellow” already implies that we’re both CEOs.
Antoine: *under breath* English majors make the worst tech execs.
Zora: What was that?
Antoine: Anyway, we’ve got a new round of angel investment so CarGo can proceed with its expansion plans!
Zora: You mean your parents’ friends ponied up another round of cash?
Antoine: *under breath* Just the worst.
Zora: What was that?
Make Antoine and Zora Plan Company Expansion- 4hrs
Antoine: If we expand our manufacturing capacity by 8% we should have enough money left over to hire the salespeople we need to hit our distribution goals. But we won’t be able to maintain our requirement of having a food cart every fifty feet on our corporate campus.
Zora: Well, we could hire 25% of the salespeople on commission and change the requirement to every sixty feet.
Antoine: Would that work?
Zora: *looks at fingernails* I minored in statistics.

Yet Another Unique Tech Startup Opportunity Pt. 2
Antoine and Zora

Antoine: Thank you for interviewing with us. It’s an entry level admin position, with other duties as assigned to support the senior staff.
Squeaky Voice Teen: So, I’ll have to make coffee runs even though you have one of those fancy European coffee makers every sixty feet or so. Got it.
Zora: Yes. The ability to multitask is going to be very important in this position.
Squeaky Voice Teen: Understood. So I’ll be doing the work of three people while getting paid half of what one should make; work too few hours to be considered full time……and, once I do qualify for benefits, you’ll replace me.
Antoine: You seem to have a lot of insight into the job-hiring process.
Squeaky Voice Teen: Did you look at my resume?
Zora: It’s twenty-four pages long. I tuned out after a while.
Make Antoine and Zora Marvel at Epic Resume- 4hrs
Make Squeaky Voice Teen Recall His Many, Many Jobs- 4hrs
Antoine: I’ve never met anyone who’s worked so many different jobs before.
Squeaky Voice Teen: Sometimes it feels like I’m in purgatory, forced to work a series of random service industry jobs at the behest of a pantheon of devious gods who think they’re more clever than they actually are.
Zora: Uh-huh. How soon can you start?

Yet Another Unique Tech Startup Opportunity Pt. 3
Antoine and Zora

Zora: We’re very excited to be talking to you about one of our “code ninja” positions!
Benjamin: “Code ninja”. Is that supposed to make me happy to be programming eighty hours a week without getting paid overtime?
Antoine: You do get paid over time!
Benjamin: Did…did you say overtime or over-pause-time?
Antoine: You’re a good listener. I like that in a candidate. NEXT!
Zora: Are you prepared to work in a dynamic work environment?
Gary: Meaning that you keep changing priorities as soon as you see something new and shiny on the Tech News Network.
Antoine: That’s insightful. I like that in a candidate. NEXT!
Zora: What do you think you can contribute to an agile development team?
Doug: Do you realize your use of the word agile is—?
Antoine: NEXT!
Make Antoine and Zora Read “Hiring for Dum-Dums”- 4hrs
Antoine: This is stupid! We’re already doing everything the book says.
Zora: I have a great idea. Two words: Travel mugs!
Antoine: For us?
Zora: We put our logo on them and give them to new hires.
Antoine: *thinking*
Zora: And for us.
Antoine: That’s brilliant!

Yet Another Unique Tech Startup Opportunity Pt. 4
Antoine and Zora

 Zora: Can we help you?
Homer: Yes, I am here to apply for a job.
Antoine: We’re a hi-tech automotive startup. I don’t think—
Homer: Yes, and I am the CEO of Compu-Global-Hyper-Mega-Net. We’re a cutting-edge internet company that does internet things that make a lot of money.
Zora: Uh, one moment, sir. I need to step outside and speak with my fellow Co-CEO.
Homer: Indeed. And I will partake in these tech company snacks that seem ten feet further apart than normal.
Antoine: What’s wrong?
Zora: Don’t you get it? He’s an undercover boss!
Antoine: *gasp* How did I not see it? He’s dressed like a complete slob! Wait, but we don’t have bosses. We ARE the bosses.
Zora: He’s not our boss. He’s the boss of Compu-Global-Hyper-Mega-Net and he’s who’s gonna try a hostile takeover on us. He’s clearly undercover and scoping us out.
Antoine: But…if he was undercover, why would he tell the truth about being the CEO of Compu-Global-Hyper-Mega-Net?
Zora: That’s how deep undercover he is!
Antoine: Oof, this takeover is gonna get hostile.
Make Antoine and Zora Panic About a Hostile Takeover- 4hrs
Make Homer Begrudgingly Walk an Extra Ten Feet- 4hrs
Antoine: Sir, we appreciate you coming down here to check out our operation, but really, CarGo is such a small operation, I’m sure, compared to Compu-Global-Hyper-Net—
Homer: Compu-Global-Hyper-MEGA-Net!
Antoine: Right, that. Really, it wouldn’t be worth your time to even consider us.
Zora: But we were wondering if maybe there was something we could do for you, so that you would could just…go away and…forget about anything hostile.…
Homer: What did you have in mind?
Antoine: How does two-thousand CarGo stock options sound?
Homer: What about one of those travel mugs you give to new hires?
Antoine: Deal!

  1. Antoine and Zora – I really enjoyed these 2 Characters as 1 ( ♥️ their Visual Character Tasks), I like when they use the CarGo Building the (umbrellas open for the outside dining tables, about the only thing missing is a Barista serving coffee that gets attacked by a 🦝 – lol!)
