An average guy sets out in search of his passion by working 52 jobs in 52 weeks. When Sean Aiken graduated from college, he still didn't know what he wanted to do with his life. Convinced that his true calling was out there if he could only muster the motivation to seek it out, Sean decided to cross North America in search of his ideal job. He called it "The One Week Job Project," and the rules were simple: anyone could offer Sean a job for one week, and when the week was up, Sean's employer would donate his wages to the ONE/Make Poverty History campaign, and it was time to move on to the next job. As the project gets underway, the once-aimless college grad tries his hand at everything from working in a bakery to trading stocks. And though Sean's dream job doesn't come easy, his epic quest soon gives him a better idea of who he really is, and what he truly wants out of life.
