Personal Paranomal Career Advice

Careers in Parapsychology/Psychical Research


By Craig Bottoms


Many people today wonder if there is a real career in ghost hunting and paranormal investigation. Well yes and no is the answer I give. There are many oppurtunities to get your fifteen minutes of fame but as a life long adventure it may not be in the cards for you personally.

Ghost and the people who hunt them or in the news. but the fame of such Ghost Hunters as Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson is a force to be recconed with. The paranomal plumbers seem to have the marketaall under control. And if your looking to be the next best haunted investigator on televsion get in line.

I was really taken back recently at a carer day event in a Texas, mall in Houston where a team of paranormal Investigators showed up to entice young Americans to focus on the paranormal as a future job source. I stood by and listened as they explained the many job opputuities of a field investigator, Paranormal web site developer, Paranormal Technical equipment manger, Ghost and Paranormal Activity Evidence analsyst, Paranormal writer and journalist and so on. I guess I was more impressed that this south Texan group were taking paranormal research to the next level.

They said to a small group that you can host your own Paranormal radio show or host a internet program that will expose all the new truths about ghossts and the people who hunt for them. All of this I thought to myself is great if only it was part of what is not already going on. They went on to say the demand for paranomal event co-ordinators and confrences across the country or looking for people to design and help with their marketing. Designing booths, getting publicity, and arranging for talent and setting up programs.

Their professionalism astounded me as they spoke about the area of paranomal equipment development and computor programing as a way to help others gain the knowledge of what the field will demand in the next 10 years. I really hate to say it but this group was either conning the public or themselves.

The paranormal community is stil in it's infancy. We as Investigators and would be ghost enthusiest seem to be caught in a trend right now where those that know how to manipulate us are takeing advantage of our pursuits. The media loves to write about us and focus it's attention on what we do. Soon The paranormal will be an even bigger business then we might imagine. Once all the craze is turned into something special by some marketing genuis in the very near future.

Paranonromal Confrences and Conventions

TAPS Had The Best So Far 2008. I know a lot of this rings true. And many of you weither you like the people involved with it or not would also agree. TAPS Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson just did it with TAPSCON in Florida which I attended. And I was amazed when I saw the great "Paranormal Ghost Hunters Machine" which Sci-fi has generated in action.

Someday we will be an accepted science then turned into a everyday accepted fact they said. At least thats the ghist I got out of it. Their was music movies and all sorts of things just like a regular sci-fi or normal trade show. The entertainment factor was brillent so were the panaels and the turn out. Probally in 2009 the attendence will double or triple.

Some think or cal l ghost hunting the new age religion. And believe that it will be the do, all must attend, thing to do. I guess Grant and Jason our favorite ghost hunters or looking forsome thing to do with their many followers as they know someday soon the Ghost Hunters will be cancelled. So why not use the fans you have now to make some money and capitilize on the star power that the show has so inadvertedly given them.

Forget about your real paranormal evidence agenda for a while now and take your lead from others in the field it seems. Jump on the paranormal machine that Sci-fi has given us and come party, hunt for ghosts, trade secrets and talk a bit of ghost gossip and have fun. Get an autograph and be entertained by Blue Oyster cult. That was the general feel of how the Tapscon Convention went.

Think you know everything about your favorite haunted paranormal Ghost Hunter celebrity? Conventions seem to give you the chance to find out. I actually got to ask Grant Wilson a question or two. I asked was does the future hold for him and he said I qoute: "More Ghosts and Understanding of the paranormal things that occur." I asked The Ghost Hunter's main haunted homeboy, would their be a Tapscon 2009." And he said, "They will be many more from the turn out he saw."

So I guess a career in Paranormal studies is just around the corner thanks to two plumbers who are just learning to hunt for ghost for real for themselves.

Where can I get a degree or a job in parapsychology?

excerpted from http://www.deanradin.com/para3.html

The payoff is that parapsychology, like other scientific frontiers, is an extremely challenging discipline with plenty of room for exploring creative ideas and making significant advancements to the state-of-the-art. If you expect fast solutions to easy problems, or absolute answers to clear questions, then parapsychology is definitely not for you. If you enjoy exploring the full range of human potential and pushing your creative talent to its limit, then there is no better discipline than parapsychology.

Many people would like to study human consciousness, parapsychology, transpersonal psychology, or some combination of these fields. While these topics are of great interest, the number of courses and degrees available in these topics are - surprisingly - very few. People often believe that there are undergraduate or graduate-level programs at universities known for having parapsychology labs, especially Duke University. And while it is not widely known, both Harvard and Stanford Universities have fellowships endowed explicitly for psychical research (but they don't advertise it, and most of the available funds have been usurped for other purposes).

Historically, academia has regarded psychic phenomena as an embarrassment due to the sensational spin that the entertainment industry puts on this topic, along with the often outrageous claims made by proponents of New Age ideas. As a result, while funds to create programs and courses have been available, they've languished for years.

The bottom line is that there is not a single accredited academic program in parapsychology offered anywhere in the United States.

This is not to say that classes in parapsychology aren't offered occasionally, even at major universities (such as the University of California, Davis), or that you cannot work on an accredited PhD with emphasis in parapsychology - because you can. The point is that you cannot earn an accredited degree in this topic. If you were really desperate to get a PhD in parapsychology, you could always buy one from any number of diploma paper mills. But you might as well save your money and print one up yourself.
