Críticas:

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 resume, 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

""Seddiqui gives a voice and hope to a generation of job seekers and graduates. His inspiring can-do spirit is contagious, and his quest puts the PATH in career path, the JOURNEY in journeyman. This is the best book by a bartending Amish-wood-woodworking, rodeo-announcing archaeologist that you'll ever read."
--Kelsey Timmerman, author of Where am I Wearing?

Reseña del editor:

For several years after graduating from college at USC, Daniel Seddiqui failed to find clarity about what he wanted to do with his life. To make matters worse, he couldn’t seem to land a job – and failing to receive an offer after over 40 interviews, Daniel decided to try a new strategy. Following his dream to explore the diverse cultures and industries offered in America, he embarked on a seemingly impossible quest: to work at 50 jobs in 50 states in 50 weeks.

This book tells how Daniel fulfilled this incredible dream. Working as a baseball scout in Massachusetts, a coal miner in West Virginia, a meteorologist in Ohio, and so on over the course of his life changing journey, he explains how he learned to adapt to each state’s unique circumstances and challenges. With vivid stories of his experience across fifty jobs (and the long drives in between), Daniel shares the lessons he learned about perseverance, risk taking, adaptability, networking, and endurance. From tales of the extraordinary kindness of strangers to the uncomfortable reality of having to sleep in his car, Daniel’s experience is an inspiration to anyone looking to break into the job market or to even just to follow their dream.

Descripción BERRETT-KOEHLER, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Like lots of college grads, Daniel Seddiqui was having a hard time finding a job. But despite more than forty rejections, he knew there were opportunities out there. So he set out on an extraordinary quest: fifty jobs in fifty states in fifty weeks. And not just any jobs. His goal was as much to explore America as to explore different careers, so he chose jobs that reflected the culture and economy of each state. Working as everything from a cheesemaker in Wisconsin, a border patrol agent in Arizona and a meatpacker in Kansas to a lobsterman in Maine, a surfing instructor in Hawaii and a football coach in Alabama, Daniel chronicles how he adapted to the wildly differing people, cultures, and environments. From one week to the next he had no idea what he d be doing, where he d be sleeping, what he d be eating, or how he d be received. He even became a roving news item, appearing on CNN, Fox News, World News Tonight, MSNBC and the Today Show--which was good preparation for his stint as a TV weatherman. Tackling challenge after challenge--overcoming anxiety about working four miles underground in a West Virginia coalmine, learning to walk on six-foot stilts (in a full Egyptian king costume) at an Florida amusement park, racing the clock as a pit-crew member at an Indiana racetrack -Daniel completed his journey a changed man. In this book he shares stories about the people he met, the lessons he learned and explains the five principles that kept him going. Nº de ref. del artículo: FLT9781605098258
