Wizard’s Guild

The Wizard’s Guild is a collaboration for intellectual entertainment and personalized emotional satisfaction. It is an intellectual society for the purpose of practicing magic, the art (the creation in congruence with emotional satisfaction) and science (the practice of methodical achievement and observational understanding as opposed to memorizing theories and practices for a test or performing someone else’s theories without them being the missing piece in your own research). Within the Wizard’s Guild we consider school, computers, and google to return emotionally weak and intellectually inconclusive results. Because the internet is not a useful tool for research, we’ve created this position. The Processor functions in accordance with “Law”, a component of language such as grammar or definition, to generate significance, in other- words, meaning or feelings. The processor works with the operator and the technician to function as a biological computer. Salary is negotiable, starting at $15 per hour. Part of the duties of the processor will be to reference the Wizard’s Guild. These references are not paid; however, they are a necessary component for generating profit within the Guild. Without this pay and or time decrease for lack of funds. With these things in mind, Processors work as independent contractors for the Wizard’s Guild. The position is open to all Members of the Wizard’s guild and is a continually expanding position. Membership in the guild is free and more processor positions will be added as membership increases. The positions is worth much more than we can pay you, but as the guild improves we will be able to pay the full value for the position. Because good computers are worth about $1000 and human equivalents are valued around $26 per hour and up, these two factors will set the standard for pay as membership increases.

For the Santa Cruz Area

Please Contact Jo S. E. with a résumé, references, a Wizard’s Guild application notice and an essay addressing this topic:
The nature of Law and Feeling. This will serve in place of a cover letter but feel free to include one. For the essay a good place to start is to look at facts in law and look at how people feel about crimes they’ve committed. The best papers will not necessarily be academic. It doesn’t matter what language it is in. I will read it. If it’s in English it makes my life easier but write in the language you are most competent in. The place I started is with people closest to me. I gave them a rule or looked at a rule they did not follow and paid attention to how they felt about it. Pay specific attention the rule as an nonnegotiable consequence of facts, and any attempt to negotiate without pointing out incongruence in facts as an emotional response. Such as “this is a(n) (thing here)” “well yeah. I guess, but . . . this little thing here. It’s kind of different.” Law is an agreement between people of a culture. And meaning comes out of the differences between experiences. If your paper says those three things, you’ve addressed the prompt. As long as you stay focused and don’t stray to far from those ideas you will understand. Applicants that display adequait understanding by relating the topics to their own life with receive special consideration.

Finding Work In a Growing Economy

My father likes to think he’s traditional. He works hard, comes home, goes to sleep, and goes to work the next day. He likes what he is working on, but he hates the job he’s at. He hardly talks to my mother, and she’s often afraid to tell him things. Up until now, this blog has been abstract and probably a little bit strange to you. But I live a normal life just as you do. I do things that, if you followed me around, would make you realize, “Hey, this guy’s just an average guy. He’s not so strange. He’s sort of like me.”

Today, I’m still “unemployed”, and I’m looking for a job. Not very hard, because I work smarter not harder, but I’m still working on finding a job to help pay for school. I’m 18, and I surprise people when I reveal my thoughts on something. I’m a writer by nature, and I’ve learned the trade well, but the way my mind works helps me get unstuck. I’m a writer, but not once have I gotten writers block.

My dad on the other hand, is more “qualified” to work than I am. He’s worked all his life. He’s a good worker, and he keeps his life in order. On paper, he’s a great employee except for the mistake he makes on his resume that makes him over qualified. In an interview he’s learned to be straight to the point, like a newspaper headline.

The problems I had growing up came from the way my parents raised me. It is important not to blame them. This way I can move on and fix the problem, so I don’t blame my parents for their shortcomings, which they passed on to me and also my brother, but he’s a special case. Because my dad didn’t see the value in making friends nor did he have any friends, it took me right up to spring of my senior year before I learned to socialize. By that time, all the people I knew that could have gotten me a job had left for college to start the next phase in life. They stressed good grades over good friends. I had problems with both because you need good friends to take your mind off of things, to simplify your life every once in a while and to give you inspiration for future projects.

While my friends were way farther off starting their lives i was already more qualified to do things that they wouldn’t be able to do even if they were “qualified”. Today, I went down to the job center. They provide computers and internet and copiers to help people find a job. I was there to attend my orientation to a program they offer that gets unemployed professionals together to network. They have a 15% success rate, meaning that 15% of their members find jobs when they were previously unemployed. Even though I had never had a job, I had never submitted a résumé, I didn’t have the friends to network and help me find an entry-level job, I didn’t have a degree, I didn’t have certification, I was more able to produce results that these people at least twice my age, still were unable to figure out. They had everything I didn’t and yet they were unemployed.

What’s my secret? I have a map. It takes me the extent of a single problem to figure out exactly where I am, and where I should be. This is Zedu. They struggled to conform to the standards, to produce things that Job listers would like to hear. The moment I encountered my first problem, I knew I was two far in to the right side of my brain, where everything is flowing and connected, but flowing and connected is not what they’re looking for. I have the tools, acquired from exploring Zedu, I have the Cru, something I never thought I could reach, and now I’m on my way up from a working class family, to a millionaire life-style. You can join me if you sow the seed.Germinate
