One Week Job

What do you want to be when you grow up?

We’ve all been asked this question. And we don’t always have an answer. There are so many different vocations out there. People always say, ‘follow your passion’, ‘do what you love’ etc. I have a childhood friend who announced when he was 12 years old that when he grew up, he wanted to sell Mercedez Benz cars.  His entire adult life, he has been a Mercedez salesman, and he loves it. He’s the only person I know who knew what he wanted to be when he grew up at such a young age, pursued it, and continues to love it.

Vancouverite Sean Aiken set out to do something different. He decided to try out 52 jobs, one week at a time. An inspiring documentary are the results of Sean’s One Week Job project.

This Saturday, January 15th the ‘One Week Job’ Vancouver premiere will be at Pacific Cinémathèque. Buy advance tickets here.

  2. I love the quote “Adults are always asking little kids what
    they want to be when they grow up because they’re looking for
    ideas” –Paula Poundstone –Stephanie
