Simple concept. Amazing result., 3 November 2010
Author: oneredpaperclip-882-17462 from Canada

Sean Aiken set out to work 52 different jobs in 52 weeks. A job a week. For a year. Seems simple, if not a little crazy, right? But the original goal of simply working 52 different jobs takes on unexpected challenges as the project's success begins to overshadow the jobs at hand. Personal emotions are brought to the surface as the true nature of some tasks rear their ugly head. Sean is forced to look within and ask himself tough questions. Why is he doing this? Will he actually find a job he likes? Near the end of the year it becomes apparent the journey isn't about the jobs, or Sean, but about people he meets and the passion they take to their chosen career path. Perfectly compliments the book of the same title. If you've read the book, the film is riveting. If you've seen the documentary, there's more in the book! A fun educational adventure with great lessons for anyone who's wondering: What do I want to do with my life?
