One Week Job

Ian who was formerly at "Drift" - see sidebar - has a new project that is well worth checking out:

One Week Job

How it works is simple!

Any individual or corporation from across the country can offer me a job for one week. The job could be absolutely anything, anywhere in Canada, from garbage collection in Toronto, to working the counter at a Starbucks in Kelowna, to working the family farm in southern Saskatchewan, to a suit and tie corporate position in Halifax.

After finishing my degree, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t settle for a career that I am not truly passionate about. My goal is to gain a better understanding of what this career would look like and inspire the many others of my generation in similar situations to commit to going after their passions.

Any proceeds you are willing to pay me for my weeks work will be donated to the Make Poverty History campaign, dedicated to tackling the issue of child poverty in Canada. Yes, there is child poverty in Canada. Make sure to read more about it and what you can do in the ‘child poverty’ section!

I am continuing to travel the country week to week, working different jobs and recording my experiences with blog entries and video clips posted to the homepage.

Sure beats the hell out of touring the country doing nothing. Figuring life out, travelling, donating to help poverty. Props bro.

Ian is a good guy and has been awesome to work with. We post stuff back and forth and his new project is pretty cool. He does great work editing things and putting the whole package together.

Stop by and wish him the best. And if nothing else, it is awesome to talk trash and I make sure to ask him "aboot" Canada. The first episode is from Toronto and you get the Quebec French Canadian Accent too. Damn, it is worth checking just for that alone.

I just checked out this blog. This is very cool! I wouldn't mind traveling all over working only a week at a time!
