50 Jobs, 50 States

Daniel Seddiqui was sick of looking for a job in economics after a three-year search. So he decided to take one job in each state, aka the Self-Promotion/Marketing Gimmick Of The Century.

Last October, as he was getting started (he spends a week in each state), he was pretty much broke, working for no pay as a park ranger in Wyoming. Earlier this month, as an ad creative in New York City, it was reported he’s raked in about $60,000 and nabbed a book deal.
