man gets 50 jobs in 50 states in 50 weeks

A Californian man went from being bored in a dead end job to getting 50 different jobs in 50 different US states in 50 weeks.

Dan Seddiqui, 27, of Los Altos, decided he would prove there were jobs out there and he was going to try as many as possible in just one year.

So he left his office job in Skokie, Illinois, to try everything from being a lobster catcher, a jazz conductor, a TV weatherman and even a Las Vegas wedding planner.

Now he is set to write a book about his amazing journey which has had publishers clamouring for the rights, reports the LA Times.

In choosing the jobs that he wanted to try in each state, Mr Seddiqui decided that he would try a career that each state was most famous for.

So he became a wedding co-ordinator in Vegas, conducting two weddings, and was a musician co-ordinator in jazz-obsessed New Orleans.

He said: "My favourite job was probably as a bartender in Louisiana in the middle of Mardi Gras. I got to meet so many great people.

"My least favourite was trying to be a lobster-man. I learned that I got very seasick, and that lobsters do a lot of pinching."

He hopes that his book, Living the Map, will be on sale by the end of the year, and would like others to take inspiration from his story.

He's now planning to become a dietician, a job that he did for a week in Mississippi - a state that suffers from widespread obesity.


Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.

What a retarded premise. There are always jobs out there. The size of US payroll is never zero.

It seems to have worked out well for him if he's getting book deals out of it.
