    A Bachelor's degree can't hurt.

    There's a Mr. Potato statue out front. You smash it's right eye in, and retrieve the gem inside. present this gem to anyone you see stocking hasbro products. they will send you on a quest, where you will use that gem to unlock an ancient dungeon. In that dungeon, you will battle a clone of the Mr. Potato statue. Shoot arrows into it's shattered eye to defeat it. It will then change form into a job application. fill out the application, turn it in, and hope for the best.

    For starters, you're going to need to go to college and graduate with a Bachelor's degree in English or another form of degree involving English/writing/etc.

    Second, you're going to need to have some past work experience. Applying for an internship with Hasbro while you're in college is not necessarily a bad idea either.

    If you do get accepted in to an internship, and they offer you the chance to stay on as a full-time employee, you will need to relocate to Rhode Island, specifically the Providence/Pawtuckett area, and apartments will run you anywhere from $700 to $1200 for a one bedroom, unless your starting salary is God-like and you can afford a small house.

    Working for Hasbro, especially in their main home office, is not something you can simply go online and apply with no experience and no college education. The closest you can get to right now would be trying to sweettalk Pete and the others at BotCon/FunPublications/Master Collector, become well-known and popular enough, and then possibly guest-write something for Hasbro for one or maybe two characters.

    Good luck!
