One Week Job
After graduating from University, Sean Aiken struggled to answer the question, “What should I do with my life?” Determined to discover his passion, he created the One-Week Job project and embarked on an epic journey throughout North America. His goal: work 52 jobs in 52 weeks to find his passion.

During his 52 weeks, he trekked more than 46,000 miles, slept on 55 couches, raised over $20,000 for charity, and tried every job he could: Baker, Teacher, Real Estate Agent, Advertising Executive, Hollywood Producer, Radio DJ and more.

On Monday, January 24, join Sean Aiken for an interactive presentation where he will share his adventures and the lessons he learned along the way. You will also have a chance to screen the documentary One Week Job.

Telus Centre, Room 150
