Product Description

50 Jobs in 50 States: One Mans Journey of Discovery Across America (BK Life (Paperback)): Daniel Seddiqui: Books. From Library Journal: Seddiqui here chronicles his 2009 journey across the United States as he worked representative jobs in each state's major industry for one week. A 2005 graduate from the University of Southern California, he conceived of this project after encountering repeated rejections for employment in his field of economics because of his lack of experience. His goal, therefore, was to add experience to his résumé, learn firsthand about different careers, and support himself. In each of the 50 chapters, Seddiqui recounts his job experience for the week, including locating the job, adapting to the work, and his perceptions of the industry's culture. From guarding the border in Arizona to coping with seasickness while catching lobsters in Maine, the memorable anecdotes contribute to an authentic sense of each job and provide an original perspective on the nation's careers. Verdict: Although not the usual career guide, Seddiqui's look at America through 50 quintessential jobs is both informative and inspiring. Recommended for undergraduate students doing career research and for college career resource centers.—Jane Scott, George Fox Univ. Lib., Newberg, OR
