Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 Wa Alaykum as Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

If everybody who did tasbih and wore a taweej got a job, then we should send this formula to Europe so that all the jobless will find a job for themselves. Sister what a farcical thing to believe in. There are no ayahs in the Quran that enable one to find a job or anything else for that matter. This is what is called jahaliya. When one is ignorant about the virtues of the Quran, a dumb amil can get away by prescribing what he does not even understand himself. If he could facilitate you with a job, why does he not do the same ritual and get a better job than being an amil.
This is definitely shirk as in your ignorance you are invoking something (even the ayahs of the Quran) for a purpose without any authority from Allah swt. It would be far better if you would lift your hands in prayer, and in your own words and language beseech Allah swt to grant you whatever your heart desires. That is what the prophet pbuh advised us to do when we wanted help from our Lord Creator. This wearing of the taweej, doing tasbih for 21 days etc., is an innovation (bidaa) and a haram act. You can do these rituals for 21 years and if Allah swt does not wish you to have a job, there is no way you will ever get a job.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
