Directed by Ian MacKenzie
After graduating from college Sean Aiken struggled with the question “What should I do with my life?” So he created The One-Week Job Project. His goal: to work fifty-two jobs in fifty-two weeks in search of his passion.
He traveled across Canada and the United States reinventing himself as a firefighter a stock trader a radio DJ a martial arts instructor an NHL mascot a snowshoe guide and more.
During the course of his seven-day stints Sean discovered many others struggling to answer the question “what should I do with my life?” To find the answer he continued to ask himself and his employers about the nature of success and the real meaning of happiness – all while having the adventure of his life.
“I was inspired on so many levels and touched by so many of the stories.” – Robert Manolson, Powerful Play Experiences
“This film isn’t just for recent college graduates. I’ve been recommending it to my friends who’ve been hit hard by this economy and others who are just not happy with what they do for work. And I, who am happily employed at a wonderful organization, enjoyed watching this film, too, because Sean does a great job of verbalizing what it is that makes a job fulfilling. Great work guys!” – Beth
