Also available, One Week Job [76 min version].
After graduating from university and struggling with the question of what to do with his life, Sean Aiken created the One Week Job Project. His goal: to work 52 jobs in 52 weeks in search of his passion. As word of the project spread, the offers began pouring in. He traveled across Canada and the United States, reinventing himself as a firefighter, stock trader, radio DJ, martial arts instructor, NHL mascot, snowshoe guide and more.
During the course of his seven-day stints, whether at a dairy farm in Alberta or a real estate office in Beverly Hills, Sean discovered many others struggling to answer the same question of finding one's calling. 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.
One Week Job will be both an entertaining memoir and a practical guide for others uncertain about their future. Most importantly, the documentary will capture the “zeitgeist” of current Western society – the realization that many people are unhappy with the current system. They are dissatisfied with their careers and want more out of their job, and their lives. The way out is to make the proverbial “leap” and leave your fear in favour of your passion. The documentary will offer the inspiration to empower others to make conscious decisions to change their lives for the better – and ultimately, the world.
