Daniel Seddiqui can tell you about both rejection and success. After graduating from college and NOT being hired after 40 different interviews, he decided to explore the working world on his own terms. Daniel set out to work one week at 50 different professions, from coal miner to weatherman, in 50 different states.

Last week Daniel talked to the Des Plaines Rotary Club about his adventure. And it was in every way an adventure; exhausting, exhilarating, dangerous, and empowering.

Library Journal said of his chronicle of this project, 50 Jobs in 50 States, "although not the usual career guide, Seddiqui's look at America through 50 quintessential jobs is both informative and inspiring."
