Can Psychic/Astrologers Help On Job Search?

Mon Mar 11, 2013 5:52 pm

I've been out of work since last year. Sent applications to many job ads with few responses. Can astrologers and psychics help someone in their career search and could it be worth their fee?

Just thought I'd ask....

Echo that.

But if you are, I don´t think astrologers can help at all since their "science" is archaic and the star alignments they based their work on has changed through the years.

Phychics are just a a sham and a bunch of charlatans.

Whatever money you were thinking on spending with these two, you are better off using it in finding ways to make your job search more productive.

[sarcasm]

Yes, and religions too. Especially Scientology.

[/sarcasm]

Seriously, sorry about you being out of work. But don't spend what little money you have on these charlatans.
Cheers

I will echo those sentiments.

I will add though, that if visiting a psychic or astrologer does provide you with some kind of confidence boost or "inner calm" that you're doing all you can, you might consider it.

Of course, now that I've vocalized(?) that point of view, the point becomes moot and you will probably not gain one bit of advantage from it.

Yes, feel free to wire money into my bank account and I'll get someone from the old country to help you.








Or maybe you can ask Shawn Spencer.

Yes, they are. After they ripped you off, you're financially broke and you have to take any job that is offered to you.

Solves a lot of job search problems IMHO.

Hmmm, that's a tough one. Have you thought about asking a psychic or astrologer?

Well, I've looked into my crystal ball and seen a vision of some weirdo laughing all the way to the bank for making up a crock of bull crap, also having liberated you of your last few remaining bucks.

Indeed. More than that, their "science" is not science. There is zero correlation between people's star signs and their personalities, etc., as test after test after test shows.

To the opening poster, take a look at James Randi's challenge, offering a million dollars to anyone who can prove that any paranormal events, psychics, astrology, ghosts, etc. are real. He has never had to give the money, and I am pretty confident he never will.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US$_One...illion_Dollar_Paranormal_Challenge

Most "psychics"/"astrologers" will take you for your last dime, and give you nothing. The best I can say is that the "best" of these people are basically sympathetic listeners who know how to read people's body language and have a gift to connect with people emotionally. It has nothing to do with actually being psychic, but they may make some people feel better.

Devil's advocate here - your state of mind is everything. If it helps your state of mind (only you can judge that) then these kinds of things can be very useful. How you approach your job search, and the actions YOU take, determine your career future. Nobody else determines it; YOU do, by your actions.  

So, the point is, if you believe in something, even if it's not real, it could give you direction and inspiration. Which translate into jobs and money!

I might suggest visiting sites like Monster.com, which have numerous articles and forums for free advice and how to improve your job search. From how and where you are looking for a job, if your resume is flawed or good, how you interview, a lack or preparing for an interview or mistakes in your applications, such advice can be valuable and cheap. Talks with friend and family may help you find your strengths and weaknesses but maybe even some leads for jobs.

Consider contract and temp work as can lead to perm jobs or potentially good references, providing income in the meantime as well as keeping up work skills. Also be open minded as to where your skills can be used in related or other fields or employers.

Considering Psychics and Astrologers just suggest desperation. The best and most important concept is to be positive, work hard and smart in the search, get counseling and not give up.

I second the other posters' opinions. All the best in your job search. Also, try getting this book from your local library.

And always act on behalf of the people you like. For most of the things you want to achieve, you need cooperation.

Don't waste your money. It's pure hokum.

Finding new work can take a while, and most applications don't get a response. Maybe try some placement agencies or headhunters. It's tough, but don't despair - you'll succeed eventually.
