They say that once a technologically is sufficiently advanced, it’s indistinguishable from magic. This week, our algorithm came up with channels that showcased jobs that bring magic to consumers by creating revolutionary personal products like the iPhone, or by magically keeping stores stocked with the goods we have come to depend on. We showcased jobs for creative people who brought magic to advertising, and jobs for people who wanted to harness the power of storytelling to keep people engaged.
We also wrote an article on how one company created a magical recruiting tool that opened up when someone typed in specific search terms. We also wrote about a research study that discussed how remembering successful moments can magically increase your ability to achieve goals.
So our editors decided to get in the act too. Here are their picks:
