Doing psychic readings, I have discovered that two things make the world go round: Love and money! (They at least give it a good hard shove in order to get it going!) When we want love, we look for a mate. When we want money, we look for a job. In the past, we did this by looking in the newspaper classifieds… of course, things have changed a lot. Nowadays, jobs are found not only in the classifieds (which often seem to yield slim pickings) but on the Internet. Jobs are still posted the old-fashioned way, in store windows; or there is the “headhunter” employment agency route that can be taken.
However, there are other ways of finding a job that exist that many people sometimes don’t know about. Right now, in this tight job market, knowing all of the ways to get work will put you head and shoulders over the other guy!
One lady I talked to was frantically looking for employment, and found it through her hairdresser. No, the lady didn’t become a hairdresser. Her own hairdresser had another client who worked for a large company that was hiring, but had yet to put any ads up! This company was also very big on hiring people who knew people – they preferred to hire someone that they even indirectly had some knowledge of. So the lady got a nice job courtesy of someone her hairdresser knew.
Another person I did a reading for asked where he could find a job – he’d been laid off from his old one. I told him to talk to his dentist – I’m not kidding. That’s what I got very strongly. The man called me back a week later to say that he had talked to his dentist who had a patient who was hiring in the man’s line of work! Pretty bizarre, but true.
Some people who call for job search readings are disappointed that I cannot always give them a specific company name where they should apply. This is tough. But what I can tell them is usually a description of the company, how big the company is, and approximately where it is located. Sometimes, though, what I see is “Talk to your dentist!”
Another method that one lady swore worked for her was looking in the Yellow Pages. She looked in the phone book at different companies and decided who she might like to work for. She then would send out resumes and maintained that if she sent out thirty she would get a job!
Whether it’s talking to people you know, calling a psychic for a description of the next place you will work, or “letting your fingers do the walking,” there are many different ways to find a job. And these are just some of them.
Do you know of others?
