You can probably go find articles based on theory or some such, and I recommend reading them.. This needs a sub title focus
Finding a Job – A process
We will start with two biases
I am PAGAN.. What does it have to do
Gives me a segway, to say sit down, pull up a bottle of your drink of choice and put on thinking hats
In my group we have a lot of interesting people.. Still people none the less.. Magic exist, and can do things..
This comes up in every group.. CASH
How do you get the cash?
We had one person turn and ask for help with a spell to get a job.. The highpriest agreed
I was there when the person showed up..
The high preist was in a business suit, and had an old one and shoes for the person.. They were expecting hand wavium, summon employment knowasus..
He did get that.. The high priest made him shave, Properly.. Put on a tie..
and sit at the magic box and begin the spell casting plan
Next five hours wrote out a series of resumes
Mind you the high priest lit candles..
Had soda, he blessed.. and crackers.. with baby wipes and an air can..
They printed out multiple copies..
You see several elders where there.. They reviewed the ‘SPELL” and sent it back several times..
So for a job he wrote out a resume.. No big deal.. Funny, you dont need that step.. Yeah.. As in mathematical proofs, you can skip steps.. at your own peril
There is your intro.. I must say what caused todays question
I have been asked job related questions a lot.. And I want to quit repeating myself
I may update, but damn I get tired of it and I am Da Lazy Scholar..
My notes on being lazy
Why do you want a job
you have bills and want things
Nothing wrong with that, but you need to know your motivation
it allows less energy to be spent and more accomplished
affects a lot of shit
remember these are components on the whole
so what have you done
An accounting so to speak
worked through school managing a paper route
worked every saturday at the church
was marching through the jungles of some foreign country
making an accounting list for yourself that list your deeds
yes, mowing grass and laundry count
getting crotch monsters into the transportation devices count
feeding the the Feline Domesticus trying to train you counts
2) What did you do
you need to know
This next part is necessary and must be said
a wee bit out there
the great search for the job
but hold on
know thy self
Personal maintenance cost
cost of living- rent, food,
time you have to spend-
non-work material that must be accomplished
eating, warshin, sleeping, exercise, continuing education, personal time, excetra
(this is important also for should I move..)
3)personal maintenance cost
time and cash management
yes there is more and harder to add together
ready for this
what is the job
A big dog here
How much does the job cost
Yes jobs cost you money
If you are paid 10 dollars an hour how much are you actually paid an hour
lets be general here
lets say you work forty hours a week, eight hours a day
with a thirty minute lunch and two fifteen minute breaks (unpaid)
it takes thirty minutes to drive to work and thirty home
thats an hour on the road
an hour a day breaks
a forty hour block takes fifty hours of time
400 dollars for 40 hours
becomes 400 dollars for 50 hours
400 dollars divided by fifty
becomes eight dollars an hour
the government takes about 30 percent
your eight now becomes 5.60 an hour
that is not counting any work cost
gas (transportation), clothes, ect
you need to know these cost and try to get close to the true cost
why know this
you know what the off is net, versus gross
4) What is the actual pay
$10 is the gross pay, $5.60 is the guess at net pay
That is four very basic points of JOBS JOBS JOBS
2)What did you do
3)Personal Maintenance cost
4)What is the actual pay
This is simplified example.. There is so much more but your decision process should have these in it.
