Want a Job as a Psychic?

There’s a new “psychic” company starting up and they’re currently looking for “gifted psychics who have prior experience”…

I should apply. I once said the Cubs were going to win a baseball game… and they did! I have a gift. So do all of you.

You could make some decent money, too:

Generous hourly rates will be paid based on gross sales of psychic services rendered through website (currently between $53.55 per hour and $116.55 per hour of logged talk/chat time).

I have no desire for anyone to take the money of unsuspecting people.

But I’d love to see a reader get the job :) It would just show that they’ll hire anyone and that anyone can make up stories about their “psychic abilities.”

The application is here.

It’s full of wonderful questions, too:

Describe in detail your prior psychic experience and corresponding dates:

How would you deal with an irate customer who insists you are wrong?

[And the grammatically incorrect:] Please check on the tools do you use to assist in your readings?

The best part is that if you have a good application, they might call you back for a live test reading.

Someone, please do this. And let me know how it goes.

(Thanks to Nathan for the link!)

    I saw this resurgence coming. Perhaps I should apply, especially if you get fifty bucks an hour making generic pronouncements to people willingly handing over their money.

  • Tony

    Why do they need to advertise?
    Wouldn’t the future employees already know about the job opening?

  • Stephen P

    So they are looking for people who conduct themselves professionally. As exemplified by the links:

    Wouldn’t they have done better to finish their website before putting it online?

    “How would you respond to a client who insists you’re wrong?”

    In the same manner that a radio signal is subject to interference – something as simple as a wall, or even weather, can influence a transmission, psychic ability depends upon the querent, since we’re looking into your future, not just ‘a’ future. You can influence the reading as well as events through your thoughts and preconceptions, so it’s possible you were throwing up ‘interference’ that accounts for the outcome.

    You know, why doesn’t the psychic call you? Wouldn’t they make better money that way?

    “Hello! This is a psychic, and tomorrow’s power ball numbers are: blah blah blah! Please send us 1%.”

    “Hello! This is a psychic, send a letter to company stating yadda yadda and get the job of your dreams! Please send us 10% of your first paycheck.”

    Yeah, not everyone would send in the reward, but hell, I’d bet many would.

    Somehow, I think I know why this never happens.

    Describe in detail your prior psychic experience and corresponding dates:

    I’m sending that information to you now. Concentrate!

    How would you deal with an irate customer who insists you are wrong?

    I convince them that they are right and that they clearly have a gift even better than mine. Perhaps they should come work here.

    [And the grammatically incorrect:] Please check on the tools do you use to assist in your readings?

    Google, FindPeople dot com, and the Magic 8 Ball. Also Grammar Checker. Try it.

    Note the rates are per actual logged chat time, not actual time on duty. I suspect real hourly rate is a lot closer to minimum wage.

  • Heidi

    How sad is it that I actually qualify for that job? I did half of that stuff when I was in college, so I even have 20 years experience. lol. Not really excited about live chatting and ripping people off, though.

  • Sarah

    Call me a cynic, but I think this may be in part a scam on the job applicants as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a mandatory “training program” or “materials” that applicants must pay for, and that the job itself probably works along the lines Erp describes, and the psychics are probably considered “independant contractors”, to boot. Basically your standard “Work from Home!” Scheme, but with a higher Woo factor.

    I suspect this is a scam. They are asking for a copy of the applicants social security card as well as drivers license.
