The top 5 things you need to know about today’s Psychic Job Market
The job market in the Intuitive Industry has evolved drastically over the past couple decades. At one time there were few legitimate job opportunities for psychic readers. That all changed with the invention of the telephone psychic network in the 1990s. We started seeing an almost unlimited opportunity for psychics who could do readings over the phone. Those who could “hold the caller” for as long as possible reigned during the early days.
The New Psychic Job Market
Today things have evolved. First of all, there are far more companies to work with. Those companies deploy a variety of technology, enabling them to reach more customers than ever before. Now a psychic can work from their home office and connect with clients across the country or around the world. If you’re interested in a career in the Intuitive Reading Industry today, here are 5 things you need to know:
ONE: Companies are looking to hire readers who can help build their brand.
Just like any business, the companies that operate psychic networks are looking for workers who will help them grow. After spending hundreds of advertising dollars to bring in each new customer, they look for repeat business to help them reach their profit goals. That means that the psychics being hired today are much more than just great readers. They must also have a good sense of how to connect with clients in a way that will encourage them to become long-term callers.
The managers hiring for these positions are looking for psychics who offer a wide variety of services. But they are also looking for something in common among all their new hires… a bit of business savvy. If you can demonstrate to the person hiring that you are a terrific reader AND you understand how important it is to focus on building long-term relationships with clients, you’ll have a much better chance of landing the position.
TWO: Successful Psychics usually diversify their income sources.
If you want to earn a full-time income working as a remote psychic worker, you’ll probably want to consider diversifying your income. Very few readers find that they are able to meet all their income requirements by working with just one company. Since your pay will be dependent on the readings you are able to provide, you need to ensure yourself against temporary (or worse) slowdowns in traffic that these businesses experience.
Most readers accomplish this by working for 2 or 3 companies. That way, if one network isn’t sending many customers, you can devote more time somewhere else that is. By keeping your options open, you can make sure that you are putting your efforts wherever the customers are going.
This can be a challenge to do successfully. It is important that you follow the rules of each company you work with. Most of the time, you won’t be able to login to accept readings from more than one company at a time, so you’ll need to schedule your time accordingly. You’ll also want to make sure you’re devoting enough time to each company so you can develop a client following.
THREE: The Telephone is only one method of communication used for psychic networks.
When the first networks started hiring psychics, the option to provide readings over the telephone instead of only face-to-face was revolutionary! Finally, there was an efficient way to reach out to more customers than ever before.
Today, while there are still psychic telephone networks available, the savvy psychic job seeker is going to be prepared to communicate with customers through other mediums. Email and Text readings have been a popular option for as long as the internet has been around. Today, video readings are growing in popularity.
Many companies will combine 2 or more methods of communication, allowing their customers options. Others focus on telephone readings but offer email follow-up to their clients. The more methods of providing readings you can be comfortable with, the better options you’ll have to find the perfect job(s) for you!
FOUR: Conditions are always changing, and the top jobs do too.
It seems as though the world of psychic networks is always evolving. The companies that were at the top of the industry just 3 or 4 years ago are not the ones at the top today. As new technologies evolve and new services launch, the jobs that offer the best pay and overall opportunities move too.
Make sure to stay up-to-date on what types of jobs are available, who is hiring and what they’re paying. If you find that wherever you’re working has slowed down and you can’t make a living anymore, you’ll want to know what your options are. Plus, there are many jobs like text-messaging or email readings that can be a part-time supplement to your regular income.
FIVE: There’s a lot of competition for each open position.
There are a lot of applicants for each psychic job opening. Sometimes hundreds of applicants are all trying to get the same job. If you want to have a good chance at getting an interview, make sure that your application really shines. Take your time when applying for jobs and make sure that your application accurately and professionally represents the value you can provide to the company.
Never assume that because you have tons of experience and are a really great reader that you’ll get the job. The fact is, most companies get a ton of really great readers applying. They are going to focus on applicants that have provided well-written responses to application questions and demonstrated their professionalism.

I didn't discover I had some psychic abilities until I was an adult. After I had my first child, it was like my extra senses suddenly awoke. I started researching everything I could about psychics and mediums. I used to be a real skeptic, but several personal experiences really opened my eyes. Eventually, I discovered that many of the women on my father's side had similar psychic abilities, going back several generations.
