Sean Aiken ☆ 2 Free downloadI enjoyed this book albeit t was difficult to pin down what this book was about It El Guero Tellez/ Tellez the Blond: Reportero de policia!/ Police Reporter! is best to start with what this books not It Haunted Louisiana: The Most Haunted Houses in Louisiana is not a how to guide on determining one s penultimate career nors not an n depth look nto 52 jobs Rather the book chronicles one A Mistaken Match individual s journeyn answering the uestion what do I want to do with my life This Lodz isntertwined with his personal and familial relationships handling his 15 minutes of fame and travel stories Overall the book was an entertaining easy read that does a great job getting the read to ask themselves the same uestion what do you want to do with your life No book will solve this riddle but getting people to recognize that there s not one definitive answer s a success The Diminished intself Spoiler Alert Sean was graduated at the top of his class n college and spoke at graduation He s a very likable and smart guy He still wasn t sure what he wanted to do so he got the dea to try 52 jobs each lasting one week The crazy thing s that he didn t have a budget and got sponsors and people donated stuff to him too The other crazy thing Claimed by a Cowboy is that a lot of companies really wanted him to work for them and sometimes even paid for his plane ticket to get there etc The thing that kept me readings that I was very curious as to what he learned from his journely Here s the spoiler He tried all different kinds of jobs and he found that the common theme that came w I heard about The One Week Job Project One Man One Year 52 Jobs by Sean Aiken on NPR many months ago I love books where people do something crazy for a year My Jesus Year The Urban Hermit Not Buying It I also am a mentor at my college through the career center for young and future alumni Discipline in myndustry I encourage everyone to do this actually Claim the Night (The Claiming it s been really rewarding andnvolved surprisingly little effort Really the biggest effort Claimed by Desire is that I give them advice and occasionally do a resume critiue My little brother graduated from college last year and has only been marginally employed since then So this book about a 25 year old who doesn t know what to do with his life so decides to try 52 different jobsn a year appealed to me on a whole bunch of levels It s a very readable memoir and Sean s a me on a whole bunch of levels It s a very readable memoir and Sean s a guy He s not doing this because of any kind of failure or lack of effort he was valedictorian Accidental Bodyguard in college after all But young adults get a lot of wellntentioned but useless advice that just stresses them out In particular they re freuently told that they have to make career decisions RIGHT NOW and those decisions will affect The Rest Of Their Lives I m here to tell you that s so not true And Sean discovered that too There was no big plan here Basically Sean came up with the dea his friend Ian helped him build the website and then he mostly just winged t He didn t take every job offer that came his way but he did always manage to have a new job every week A few were jobs he was very Mehr als das interestedn like advertising and stock trading and others were just really random like cowboy and cattail picker This The Accidental Cowboy (Angel Crossing, Arizona, isn t a business or self help book and so he doesn t give a 2 3 page recap of every job In fact he rarely talks about the jobs at all Because one of the things he eventually learnss that despite the fact that one does spend at least 40 hours a week Abby and the Bachelor Cop in their job one s jobsn t necessarily one s life He learns that life happens regardless of plans both good meeting a girl and bad an Eye to Eye illnessn the family And he learns that one difference Accidentally Expecting is being a grown ups that one keeps to their commitments The final lesson he learns s one that s been around for a long long time the path s the goal As is one that s been around for a long long time the path Herzrivalen is the goal As as people kept asking him what he thought he d do after the 52 weeks were over thet seemed like this project was going to be that Not continuing to do one week jobs but talking to students about their lives and careers Emphasizing that while t s mportant to do some.

Thing you re passionate about you can change your mind later and money sn t everything Sean was fairly sure of some of these things going n but they were just theories whereas at the end he was sure he d proven what was mportantAt first I found t a little strange that he kept using American statistics when he was n Canada but about half way through the project he started working a lot n the US so then Always Look Twice it made sense A lot of this project came together through serendipity but that s often truen the real world that s how I got my first real job He travelled all over North America even to Hawaii He learned a lot of valuable lessons how to motivate people and how not to the All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night importance of communication and what wasmportant to him This experience Any Man Of Mine is going to stay with him for manymany years I found his storynspiring and reassuring I think a lot of 21 to 25 year olds would find Sean s story very valuable In fact I Annalee And The Lawman intend to send this copy to my brother and mentiont to a couple of my mentees I appreciate that Mr Aiken went to so much trouble to really find his life s calling and I hope others will be The Apollonides Mistress Scandal inspired by his experiment to not be pressurednto doing what their parents think they should do and nstead refuse to settle There s no easy answer that will tell a recent grad exactly what they should do n life but I hope this book tells them that s okay Speaking as a former bartender research assistant receptionist mortgage typist retailer telemarketer box office assistant manager babysitter and okay Speaking as a former bartender research assistant receptionist mortgage typist retailer telemarketer box office assistant manager babysitter and assistant I agree with Mr Aiken that you can really do anything and you can also change f that doesn t work out It s frustrating when you re Anticipation in the I don t know what I want to do stage butt won t last forever and you will find something to do Hopefully t ll also be rewarding and satisfying but figuring out what you want to do s part of the goal tself I wish Mr Aiken much luck n his future endeavors I did finish this book but t was struggle I found this book to be about the author s life rather than the actual jobs he worked I would have loved to have read about the jobs themselves and the type of people that worked them Instead t was mainly about the author finding love at the start of his years of jobs and the will theywon t they manage to continue a long distance relationship I did however love the little facts relating to each job at the start of each chapter they were the saving grace for me with this book and perhaps the only reason I actually finished Annie and the Outlaw it If you like this sort of book premise then try Danny Wallace Yes mant s much better and very very funny AJ Jacob s said ANNIE AND THE PRINCE it best I can t say wether Sean was a good auarium host or tattoo artist but I do think hes very good at one job writingIn this book Sean takes you on a journey When you first pick The Single Dad's Redemption it up you may only be expecting a detailed list of each job what he learned from the job and whether or not he likedt But there A Christmas Affair is SO much Sean takes you through a journey One thatnvolves love pain
