UMD Hosts “50 Jobs in 50 States: 5 Lessons Learned”

DULUTH, MN – UMD Career & Internship Services, in celebration of National Career Development Month, is hosting guest speaker Daniel Seddiqui, author of 50 Jobs in 50 States: One Man's Journey of Discovery Across America, on Wed. Nov. 6 at 4 pm in the Kirby Student Center Ballroom.

Seddiqui will be giving a presentation entitled “50 Jobs in 50 States: 5 Lessons Learned” focusing on five key concepts gleaned from working all over the United States. The five key lessons are perseverance, risk taking, adaptability, networking, and endurance. After the presentation, there will be a Q&A and a book signing. This event is open and free to the public.

Seddiqui graduated in 2005 from the University of Southern California with a major in economics. After more than forty interviews, that never amounted to anything, and volunteering for several years, he decided to work at least a week in every state. Seddiqui sought work that reflected the culture and economy of each state.

This event is sponsored by UMD Career & Internship Services, Kirby Leadership Institute, Office for Students in Transition, College of Liberal Arts, Labovitz School of Business and Economics, Office of Civic Engagement, Swenson College of Science and Engineering, the Industrial/Organizational Psychology Club, M.A. in Psychological Science, and the College of Education and Human Service Professions.
