One Week Job Show – Episode #1: Steam Whistle Brewery

in The Show

At long last – the pilot episode of the One Week Job Show is here! The episode is the result of many…many…many hours of work shooting Sean on the job, editing the footage, searching for the soundtrack, encoding, transcoding, uploading, you name it. The result is an approx 17 minute film.

In this episode, we’re introduced to Steam Whistle Brewery in downtown Toronto, where Sean tries his hand at pretty much every job in the company. Also, we introduce a number of themes, such as how a great work environment is a valuable asset, and crucial to a successful organization.

Finally, Sean battles with the balance between working a one week job and handling the media interviews (radio, tv) that draw some criticism from others.

So watch the show, share it far and wide, and most of all – let us know what you think! All feedback is appreciated.

    Awesome stuff Sean, very inspiring and motivational for a generation who has enough money for their double latte, designer jeans, and iPod Nano – but not enough money for rent. I am glad to see that you are getting some good media attention as well; much like Ian did on his “let me on Survivor” campaign. Best of luck in all of your future careers, no matter how fleeting they may be.

    Hey Guys,

    Julie and I just watched the video. Great job! It looks like it was a lot of work. It was good to see you on Monday for dinner. I hope your super charged energy drinks kept you awake.

    oh, and i think if you took my highschool grad photo and aged it like 10 or 15 years, you would get the president guy at the end there 😛 maybe its just me (well Lorraine seems to think so)
    anyway.. take care you two!
    ps ian, what does your wife think of you taking off so quickly after getting married? lol.

    Awesome job fellas. I myself am a 24 year old, sometimes enjoying my job as a high school teacher and sometimes finding myself completely restless. Sean, you’re an inspiration to many people who you will never even meet. You go 100% at your passion, which is a something many will never do. Keep it up, and if you were down in the states, I’d help you find a job. For now, I’ll just enjoy the great videos.

    Hey guys! Great job–I loved the episode. Here I am finishing my second round of post-secondary education in a few weeks, and I still don’t feel ready to choose the next step in my life. It’s really amazing what you’re doing Sean, and I love hearing about your journey. Good luck with it all! And Ian, nice job with the episode…I’m looking forward to the next one!

Keep up the work.Gives me a feeling like I’m not alone, and it gives me hope that one day I’ll find something out there for me, but yeah…Just trying to keep positive about things.
