My Hero Academia is looking to have one good year. Not only with the anime release its third season next month, but Kohei Horikoshi’s hit series is also getting its first film. The debut movie has been kept hush-hush for now, but it seems like things are moving behind the scenes.
After all, the movie’s team is looking to hire some staff to help promote it, and that someone could be you.
Recently, the official site for My Hero Academia’s movie put out a job listing for the public to check out. The film is using Twitter to hire 20 promotional staffers who can help hype the film (via Crunchyroll).

For those unfamiliar with My Hero Academia, the series was created by Kohei Horikoshi and has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has super powers but he was born without them. Dreaming to become a superhero anyway, he's eventually scouted by the world's best hero All Might and enrolls in a school for professional heroes. The series has been collected into 15 volumes so far, and has been licensed by Viz Media for an English language release since 2015.
