Witches’ Spell: Get the Job (Interview Oil Recipe by Cunningham)

It does not take a witch with a crystal ball to know that interviewing for a new job is stressful and time consuming. Every potential interview is an opportunity for a witch to shine, or to feel inadequate depending upon how well we have prepared for it. Smartest things any witch can do are to update our resumes to the nth degree and prepare on a personal level for all eventualities.

Make a “Be” Witching Resume

Trim and pare until all that is left is your highest quality information. Target your mission statement and cover letter on every resume you hand out so that it stresses your strengths for that individual opportunity. Highlight skills specific to the job you are currently applying for, and note any degrees, awards and recognition you have achieved that strengthen your position. Make certain you have the best possible professional and personal references to tout what an amazing person you are both on the job and off.

Magickally: Use specific incense that targets your astrological strengths, or your elemental strengths to emphasize your worth to the company, burn it on your altar as you pass your completed resume through the smoke and cast a spell to imbue your resume with the power to sell your specific skill sets to everyone who reviews the resume. Create a buzz among the potential employers by using a tiny bit of the “Interview Oil” on the tips of your fingers to anoint the very tip of your resume corners. It should not be more than a hint of scent. You do not want it over powering their senses, just teasing them. When you arrive for the interview wearing the same scent, it will be a familiar scent by then and what is familiar is preferred. Use an invisible ink to draw a specialized sigil, rune, or glyph to accentuate skills and help you along.

Dress the Part

Make certain you choose clothing appropriate to the position. Launder them with unscented detergent so that you do not have a mixture of fragrances, which can prove distasteful to many interviewers. Make certain your clothing is freshly pressed, perfectly accessorized. Neither too much jewelry, nor too little, as both options are distracting. A simple watch and single ring for most interviewees is a good choice. If you have pierced ears, a simple stud, nothing too flashy works best. You are trying to sell your qualifications for the job, not your personal style and ability to accessorize.

Magickally: Use soft colors to accentuate how you want the interviewer to feel about you or, if possible, use a shade of blue that looks good on you. Blue being a color that signifies trustworthiness, calmness and sturdiness of character, you may as well use color magick in your favor, right? If you have a certain trait, you want to bring out in the interview, use a neutral color, and use your color magick in accessories. You may also empower your clothing with a magick spell or via ritual prior to donning it for the interview. Wear a special talisman under your clothes or carry it in a pocket. Make sure the jewelry you wear aids you in the interview, based on the metals or stones.

Practice, Practice, Practice

In a mirror, you can practice speaking about yourself, selling your talents and strong points without coming off as boastful or arrogant. Practice a confident smile for greeting, an open honest expression to show your interest as you listen to the interviewer. Practicing your interview ahead of time in a mirror and with others allows you an opportunity to master listening skills, express enthusiasm for the position, and rehearse your answers so they feel natural.

Magickally: If you know the name of the person who will interview you, create a simple parchment spell with Dragon’s Blood Ink or Lampblack Ink giving you control over the interviewer, simply by writing their name out vertically and creating “feelings” for them to experience during the interview with you. (An example of this is shown at the top of this page.) If you do not know the interviewer’s name, then draw a copy of the company logo and cross it with your qualifications and positive statements about your skills for the job.

Prepare with Care: Magickally

The day of the interview, allow yourself plenty of time to prepare. Take a cleansing bath to focus on the intent of removing negativity, enhancing your natural confidence and friendliness. Very, very lightly apply the Interview Oil so that it is more of “a hint” than “a scent”. You do not want it overpowering or obvious. Eat a healthy meal at least an hour before the interview to prevent embarrassing stomach rumbles or lightheaded feelings, carve power words, runes, glyphs or sigils into the food before eating it to ingest the power. Allow sufficient time to arrive so that you do not feel rushed and you have time to sit and do deep breathing and meditation to calm yourself and focus on your strengths before you enter the building for the interview.

Witches Interview Oil (Cunningham)

Ylang Ylang – 4 drops
Lavender – 3 drops
Rose – 1 drop

Use when attending an interview as it creates a favorable impression when worn very lightly, also helps to calm you.


As always, remember that as a witch, you can personalize a spell or ritual, add additional items to strengthen any spell work as you wish. Add New Moon Water to your cleansing bath to strengthen the focus on a new job. Carry specific stones, a small piece of charged metal, specific herbs in a pouch, etc. Always remember the only limit to the power of a witch’s spells and rituals is their imagination.

All Apologies

I have been trying to keep the content flowing and active, but I have a son who is in need of a bullwhip and a chair to tame him and corner him into doing his homework lately, so the blog has been slacking and I apologize for the delays.

Those who know me in real life will understand that I am serious when I say I have 67 items in the works. All are already in some form of completion for addition to the blog. I have pulled out old data from the original website started back in 1996, almost two decades ago, back when I first began teaching myself web design, first started putting up the recipes, information and ideas, that the coven created. I have been updating the info from the original SHC site with the newer information I have been using and moving around each time I upgrade computers. Getting three of four varied wordings to spells and reading the results to see which was the best. Cleaning up the deplorable writing I did when I was sleep deprived from having a 3 1/2 year old son and two 2 year old sons to tend to while learning HTML, and a husband fond of overtime to keep us all fed, housed, and clothed. LOL

It is slow going and I hope you will bear with me. Now that the boys are 19, 18 and 18, they are somewhat less time consuming. Only trouble now are the recent additions to the household and one who likes to cause chaos, but that one is finding that I am not as easy a mark for chaos as I used to be last time I moved them in with me almost a decade ago to help them the first time, or when they shared a space at my sister’s while the boys and I were there while fixing up the old house and finding this one when I was paying their food and needs while my sister gave them free utilities, a roof and bedding. Now, I let them know when they are treading thin ice.

If that one actually pushes until they break the ice, family or not, I will have no problem with showing them the outside of the front door as I will not have the additional stress in my and the boys lives. We have our own lives to live, tend to and do not need to deal with someone else’s manufactured drama.

Point being was not to vent, though I did so anyway, but to let you know, I have not forgotten you, or the blog, and I will be back full time ASAP.

Thank you for the visits and comments as I really enjoy hearing from you all!
