April 11, 2014

The public is invited to join Anoka-Ramsey Community College Career Counseling staff as they welcome author and career adventurer Daniel Seddiqui to present:

Living the Map: 50 Jobs in 50 States in 50 Weeks
One Man’s Journey of Discovery Across America

Tuesday, April 29, 2014
11 a.m. to noon
Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room (SC270/SC272)

Seddiqui will discuss his travel to all 50 states and the 50 different careers he explored in just 50 weeks. Participants will learn about his various careers, as well as the various environments and cultures that America offers, and the opportunities that exist throughout the United States. Seddiqui will also discuss how he experienced the various lifestyles that each state has to offer by focusing on one career per state; a career that is popular and represents that state.

“My goal is to help Americans understand each other's lives, respect each other's hard work and stimulate peoples' curiosity about different lifestyles,” said Seddiqui.

Seddiqui took on various jobs throughout the country including rodeo announcer in South Dakota, model in North Carolina, coal miner in West Virginia, marine biologist in Washington, border patrol agent in Arizona, lobsterman in Maine, and just about everything in between.

“I had the opportunity to experience Daniel’s presentation,” said event organizer and Anoka-Ramsey Counselor Jill Harrison. “He was an enthusiastic, engaging and humorous speaker who shared how he turned 40 failed interview experiences after college graduation into 50 job opportunities. We hope he will provide some hope, motivation, and inspiration to college students and others trying to find a career they’re passionate about.”
