A university graduate who set out to work 52 jobs in one year as a way of deciding what to do with his life, Aiken trekked more than 46,000 miles, slept on 55 couches, raised over $20,000 for charity and tried every job he could: baker, teacher, real estate agent, advertising executive, Hollywood producer, radio DJ, and more.
“The goal of the campus tour, much like the One Week Job movement, is to help young people discover what they’re passionate about,” said Aiken. “So many young people are in the exact same situation that I was, struggling with the question, ‘What should I do with my life?'” he continued. “I know that sharing my story and what I learned can help ease that transition into the working world.”
Students, new graduates and other members of the York community are invited to visit the Career Centre website to learn more about the Centre and how to register for Sean Aiken’s Discover Your Passion Tour session online.
