Will the real Harry Potter fans please stand up?

Here at EDsmart, we realize that most people could use a little magic right now, and we love Harry Potter.

Most of the Muggle world is struggling with self-isolation and not having a normal routine--like we're all living in the cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging.

We realize that at this time, we can't all head to Diagon Alley to stock up on goods nor Hogwarts to be with our friends.

So, in light of all that's going on out there and in our homes, we've decided to pay up to five Muggles, Mudbloods and magic folk $1,000 each to watch every Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movie--the Ultimate Dream Job.

The right candidate will be chosen by the Sorting Hat.

Who We Want to Hire

The person we're looking for is not only a Harry Potter fan but also an active, outgoing social media personality who would be thrilled to live-tweet or live stream their Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts movie marathon experience while tagging @getedsmart and/or #getedsmart.

The only requirements are that you are 18 years old or older, eligible to work in the United States, and an active social media user.

If you're hired, simply sit down in your favorite movie-watching location, watch the movies, grub, and post it on your social media platform or live stream.

Once the magical marathon, live-tweeting and live streaming, etc. are over, we'll have you rank each movie and post it online.

No cheap college degree, accelerated Bachelors degree, most affordable online college needed to apply--although you can find the best online colleges or the cheapest online MBA program here if you're looking for some accredited online schools or free online college courses. Check out our online colleges with free laptops page to see which colleges offer free laptops to their students. Or for an advanced degree see our cheapest masters degree online.

10 movies

25 hours 06 minutes

Mind you, real Harry Potter fans won't need this list but we'll provide it just in case 🙂
