One Man, One Year, 52 Jobs: Finding Your Best Career Fit with Sean Aiken, author of The One-Week Job
You’ve graduated, now what? Are you struggling with the question: what’s the best career for me? Or maybe you already have a career and you are asking yourself about change: How can I find a career that suits me, my skillset? What are some of the best ways to find a career I’m passionate about? How do I discover my transferable skills? How can I be pro-active to gain the career – and life – I want? Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Sean Aiken who found a unique way of answering these types of questions:The One Week Job Project. In his Project, anyone, anywhere, could offer Sean a job for one week. Any money he earned for the work, he asked the employer to donate towards the ONE / Make Poverty History campaign. Total earned = $20,401.60
On his inspirational quest, Sean tried everything: Bungee Instructor, Dairy Farmer, Advertising Executive, Baker, Stock Trader, Firefighter, and more. Wherever he could find work, he’d go there, find a couch to crash on and immerse himself in whatever profession was at hand. And then he’d move on.
Sean Aiken graduated from Capilano University with a degree in Business Administration in 2005. At the top of his class, with a 4.0 cumulative GPA, he was voted the class valedictorian. He started the One-Week Job project at age twenty-five, with a goal of working 52 jobs in 52 weeks in search of his passion. His book about the experience was published by Penguin Books in April 2010.
