Spring is almost upon us... and that means we're almost done the Canadian portion of our 'Discover Your Passion' Tour! It's been an incredible journey: we've experienced the beauty of the road, the inspiration of hearing your stories, and plenty more. There's still a few dates to go... in the meantime, here's a small gallery from the trip:
This is your chance to see the inspiring film "One Week Job" along with the film's director Ian MacKenzie, and star Sean Aiken. We're very fortunate and grateful to be having the event at The Steam Whistle Brewery, an awesome space, and Sean's employer "Week #19" of 'The One-Week Job Project'.
$8 Advance - BUY NOW or $10 at the door
BEER 7pm ~ 9 Film (75 mins) starts at 7:30pm
After the film, Sean and Ian will give a brief talk and Q&A. We sold out our Vancouver screening, and we'd love to do the same in Toronto!
Hope to see you there! Please help spread the word!
Sean & Ian
Check out a sneak peek at the Discover Your Passion event in Calgary last week. I pulled together some quick clips, and interviews with David Aplin Recruiting reps Kathryn Farrell and Jeff Aplin. They share their thoughts on why they joined up with One Week Job and how much they enjoy helping you find your passion!
Check out David Aplin Recruiting's new resource site for grads 'From Here To Career."
On the drive out to the theatre on Saturday morning, with the churning anxiety in my stomach that comes from throwing any large event, I remarked to Sean, "You know... it's so much easier not to do things."
Of course, the appropriate answer came soon after. "But then, it's more fun to actually do them." And with that, we proceeded into the afternoon flurry of activity that was the Vancouver premiere of One Week Job.
Thanks to you, dear supporter, we SOLD OUT the event entirely, even having to turn a few people away at the door. It was more than we could have hoped for, and even more fulfilling than expected. We raised $500 to donate towards Steps Over Swaziland, an upcoming project aimed at helping orphans in Africa.
Sean and I would also like to give a huge THANK YOU to the sponsors and partners that made the event possible:
Also thanks to Karly Warkentin and musical guests who played to the audience before the show.
Missed the film? You can buy your own spankin' copy of the One Week Job film right here!
The premiere was the kick-off for our cross-Canada "Discover Your Passion" Tour hitting campuses across the country from Jan-April.
We'll be posting video updates, photos, and blogs during the tour, so stay in touch via the Facebook Page, or signup to our newsletter on the top-right.
You're invited to the Vancouver premiere of One Week Job - starring Sean Aiken and directed by Ian MacKenzie.
The film follows Sean as he works 52 jobs in 52 weeks trying to find his passion. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll likely have a few beers It's a Saturday you won't forget!
