Is your DVR set to record shows like Ghost Hunters, Paranormal State and Ghost Adventures?
Have you ever used a voice recorder to pick up EVPs?
Do you like to hang out in places like graveyards and abandoned buildings?
Dr. Michael Henry may have a job for you.
Henry runs St. Charles Ghost Tours, now in its seventh year. This year, he's looking to add something to his business—a ghost-hunting intern or two.
"This is an opportunity to learn about ghost hunting and the paranormal for a collection of experts you cannot find anywhere else," Henry said.
Henry said he's looking for someone with a strong background in science, and a degee in history or science and experience with research is a plus.
He would also like someone with performance or sales experience who is used to speaking in front of people.
"If you have stage fright, this isn't for you," Henry said.
Hours will mainly be on Friday and Saturday evenings for the tours, but flexibility in scheduling is a must.
The Ghost Tours staff includes electronics experts, engineers, an archeologist, historians, professional photographers and video operators.
"We offer a lot more than just really cool black t-shirts," Henry said.
Occasionally, they research locations overnight.
Interested persons can contact Henry at 314-374-6102 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Henry has done extensive research about St. Charles history, and even if you're not into the paranormal, the Ghost Tours make for a fascinating evening of historical trivia.
For instance, did you know Main Street used to be where Riverfront Drive is now? The street was moved to the west side of that row of houses and businesses when flooding became an issue.
Take a careful look at the back entrances of those houses along Riverfront Drive—with many of the buildings, it's obvious that those backs were meant to be the fronts of the buildings.
