18. 50 Jobs in 50 States One Man's Journey of Discovery Across America (Large Print 16pt) - Daniel Seddiqui

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Like lots of college grads, Daniel Seddiqui was having a hard time finding a job. But despite more than forty rejections, he knew opportunities had to exist. So he set out on an extraordinary quest: fifty jobs in fifty states in fifty weeks. And not just any jobs - he chose professions 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 exactly what his duties would be, where he'd be sleeping, what he'd be eating, or how he'd be received. He 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 television weatherman. Tackling challenge after challenge - overcoming anxiety about working four miles underground in a West Virginia coal mine, learning to walk on six - foot stilts (in a full Egyptian king costume) at a 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, reveals the lessons he learned, and explains the five principles that kept him going.
