No movie this year—hell, maybe any year—has unleashed the sheer amount of promotional material as Guillermo del Toro’s giant monsters-versus-giant-mechs adventure, Pacific Rim. Seemingly every single day we get a new picture, poster, or image. We got one yesterday, and the day before. Now the viral campaign has unleashed yet another new piece of propaganda. This one presents an interesting potential career opportunity: Giant Mech Manufacturer (or, if you’ll forgive us, “Jaeger Meister”).
When massive beasts called Kaiju emerge from the depths of the ocean—via a portal into another dimension—the human race creates giant robots called Jaegers to combat the menace. Given the size and scale of these machines, you can bet that there is a great need for engineers to design them. If you have the necessary qualifications, this could be you. What better way to put all that education to use that in helping design and build giant metal monstrosities?
