After getting settled in his job with // in just one week, Sean Aiken is now out of a job. No, he has been laid off or fired. He is leaving as planned, just as he left his last job and several before that. He is under an adventurous1 quest to complete 52 jobs in 52 weeks. One new job every week, from a rock climbing instructor2, to a tatoo artist, to a veterinary assistant. "Everything is OK."Aiken seems to have done it all.

"I have been a radio DJ. I have been a veterinarian. I have been an advertising3 executive, a florist4, yogurt /, / , snursh guide,/ differnet things "

Aiken says he has been in c to c working different jobs and is able to do it by keeping his expenses low. That seems nearly impossilbe though, considering he's not even getting paid for his work. But instead, he's having his employers donate his earnings5 to poverty central organization.

"And the money goes to / is the one campaign and so how I survive is keeping my cost down as mush as possible. I guess that staying at people's houses is big help, taking the bus, doing some hitchhiking, I also have a sponsor helping6 out little bit with the travel expenses as well."

Although he worked at the Ukrain for a short time, Aiken got a great review from his temporary boss who at first was hesitated to hire him.

"He called me, explained what he was going to do and I still said what do you doing, I don't quite get it. But when I went to oneweekjob.com I could see, you know, his previous 30 jobs that he had done in the past 30 weeks. And I could see this guy was really committed to the idea, and it's an exciting idea. It's pretty good job this week. "

Aiken isn't sure where his job and interval7 taken next, but he knows it will never be boring.

"It's more about, you know, learning something new each week and kind of gaining a better understanding, you know, what I am looking for my career, what I need to be happy."
