FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OneWeekJob.com asks 'Would you hire Sean Aiken for one week?'
VANCOUVER, BC Ã¢â‚¬" In an attempt to find his passion, Sean Aiken, 25, has created a website that allows any individual or company from across Canada to make him a job offer for one week. He will continue to fulfill jobs one week at a time throughout the country while recording his experiences with blog entries and short video clips posted to his website One Week Job (www.oneweekjob.com)
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think that many in my generation have seen our parents stuck in the same job they were not necessarily happy with for far too long,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Sean. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are realizing the importance of making a career choice that suits our skill set, while at the same time matches our personality, values, and passions as well.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Graduating top of his class with a Business Administration degree and voted Class Valedictorian, Sean believes there are many signs of his generation putting off the transition into adulthood; taking longer to finish university, get married, move out, start a family and to enter the work force.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“In a world where there are so many possibilities, the weight of all the possibilities is overwhelming,Ã¢â‚¬Â he continues. The One Week Job website will allow him to explore many types of employment and share his experience cialiscouponcard.com with others.
Any individual or corporation from across the country can offer Sean a job position for one week. He stresses the job could be absolutely anything, anywhere, from garbage collection in Toronto, to working the counter at a Starbucks in Kelowna, to working a family farm in Saskatchewan, to a suit and tie corporate position in Halifax.
All proceeds that the company or individual is willing to pay him for his week of work will be donated to the Make Poverty History campaign (www.makepovertyhistory.ca) dedicated to tackling the issue of child poverty in Canada. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was shocked to hear that today nearly 1 in 6 Canadian children are growing up in poverty,Ã¢â‚¬Â explains Sean. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There is really no excuse for it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
For future fans of SeanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s project that are unable to offer Sean a job, he stresses his appreciation for other ways to help, whether spreading the word online, or offering a place to stay while he is in your city. Sean also plans on leveraging the growing trend of blogging, online videos and other forms of social networking to record and promote his weekly adventures.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“In doing so, I hope to learn more about myself along the journey, bring some much needed awareness to the issue of child poverty in Canada, and in turn share what I learn with the countless others in my generation who are in similar situations.Ã¢â‚¬Â
When asked why he thinks that his generation has difficulty deciding on their certain careers, his answer is simple: Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have been told our whole life that anything is possible. Well, our parents did a great job, because now we actually believe it!Ã¢â‚¬Â
Week one of SeanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s journey begins February 26th, 2007. Visit www.OneWeekJob.com to find out more about the project and how you can offer Sean a Ã¢â‚¬ËœOne Week Job.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
