After graduating from college, Sean Aiken struggled with the question "What should I do with my life " So he created The One-Week Job Project. His goal: to work fifty-two jobs in fifty-two weeks in search of his passion. He traveled across Canada and the United States, reinventing himself as a firefighter, a stock trader, a radio DJ, a martial arts instructor, an NHL mascot, a snowshoe guide, and more. During the course of his seven-day stints, Sean discovered many others struggling to answer the question "what should I do with my life " To find the answer, he continued to ask himself and his employers about the nature of success and the real meaning of happiness - all while having the adventure of his life.

I thought the idea behind the movie was interesting, but not executed well. There was a website where this guy updated his jobs, so going into the movie you were just expected to already be familiar with the whole idea. There was very little set-up of how this experiment happened and we didn't see much of what went on at each job. I would have liked to spend a little more time at certain jobs and have him explain why he picked the ones he did, and what he learned from this whole thing. Nothing felt resolved in the end and he still didn't seem to have a clear idea of what he wanted to do after all all that. Just pretty amateur overall.

Good either as a standalone or a companion piece to the book "The One-wek Job Project". A good example, also, of what independent film-makers can achieve with limited resources.

The concept had potential but the finished product was boring, repetitive and predictable.
