As you may have guessed, trying to keep up with the pace of an "episode a week" was folly at best. So instead, they're more like Easter eggs that you find posted on the site when you least expect it...a nice surprise. So without further ado, here's Sean's bone-crushing week as a Martial Arts Instructor at Dojang Studios in Vancouver, BC.
The long wait is over! Here's Sean's week as a Fashion Buyer in Manhattan. Sorry it took a while to complete this episode; there was quite a lot of information and footage from this week, so it was definitely a challenge. But hopefully, at over 11 minutes of goodness, it was worth the wait!
Thanks again to everyone who made it a great job: Global Purchasing Companies, Vacation Vocations, Stylesight Trend Reporting, Iceberg Army and Navy, Clementine Vintage Clothing, and everyone else we missed.
Note about future episodes: given the amount of time and effort it takes to craft each episode, from now on, I'll be releasing shorter vignettes instead of longer clips. This way, I can have the video updates out sooner and it gives me time to organize and collect all the footage from each week.
Hey everyone, here's Sean's week as an Aquarium Host in Atlanta, Georgia. Enjoy!

Here it is - Sean's week covering the Toronto International Film Festival for Roots Canada. Those of you who had been following our blog know that it was a challenging week, but also very rewarding.

In Episode #2 Sean works a week at New Tribe Tattoo in downtown Toronto. He meets colourful characters and gets a glimpse into the world of tatooing and piercing.
Themes explored in this episode are the existence of discrimination in the workforce, and the difficulty of trying a one week job in an occupation that demands years of training and creative skill.

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.
