FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE One Week Job Launches Internet TV Show
(July 23, 2007) To share more of his OneWeekJob.com experiences, 25-year-old Sean Aiken has launched an Internet TV show/video podcast.
Launched in Feb 2007, the One Week Job project chronicles AikenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s year-long journey as he travels around Canada working a different job a week. Jobs are offered by individuals or companies that hear about One Week Job through the media or OneWeekJob.com. Aiken, who graduated at the top of his class with a Business Administration degree, has so far experienced careers ranging from dairy farmer to yoga instructor to software marketer to headhunter.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m learning so much and want to be able to share my experiences with others, so expanding to a regular television-style show seems a natural step,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Aiken. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am trying to bring others through the journey with me, hoping that they will feel a part of the adventure, be inspired by it, and learn with me.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Starting July 30th, The One Week Job Show (http://www.oneweekjob.com/show) will begin production in Toronto. Part reality tv, part adventure series, each episode will run approximately 10 minutes. The show will be syndicated on the One Week Job website, as well as all major video portals (Youtube, Daily Motion) and social networking communities (Facebook, Myspace). Aiken is currently seeking sponsors for weekly episodes to cover travel expenses, food, accommodation and equipment.
AikenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s journey has attracted a lot of attention from media across Canada, including MTV Canada, CBC Newsworld, Global National, CTV Canada AM, and MacleanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Magazine. Aiken also publishes a bi-weekly column in the Globe and Mail exploring his journey, and of course he posts regular entries on his blog at OneWeekJob.com.
All proceeds that a company or individual pays Aiken for his week of work are being donated to the Make Poverty History campaign (www.makepovertyhistory.ca).
