52 Jobs in 52 Weeks

Sean Aiken was a keynote speaker at a staff conference I attended on April 7. He has a really neat story. He graduated from Capilano College with a degree in Business Administration in 2005 and was at the top of his class. He had the same question many graduates have, “What now?” He decided to do the One Week Job Project.

Here’s how it worked: 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

I’m very fascinated by his journey. It might not be where I’m headed but I thought I would share anyways.
