Magic and the FTC
« on: October 01, 2007, 02:41:48 PM »
I want to do an externship at the FTC...but so do a lot of people at my school.  I've been a professional magician my whole life. You think I should sell myself as a magician who can see fraud and deception from a mile away...as somebody who's used to lying? Or should I stay away from the magic thing?

Seriously?  Are you really this ignorant or is this some lame attempt to be funny?

It's something to put on your resume if you had a paid job, but that's it.
