60 ideas to find the most suitable job

Sixty in sixty sounds like an interesting project.

This summer Michael Warshafsky, an 18-year-old from Ontario, has been going on a job shadow marathon: 60 jobs in 60 days.

Through this exploratory exercise, he has got exposure to many different occupations and then shared first-hand knowledge with his blog readers. By doing job shadows back-to-back, he has been able to contrast the pros and cons of each career path. At the end of each day, he has compiled his thoughts in a new blog entry. 

When he's done with the marathon, this blog will serve as a resource for future students in his position.

Each blog entry (ie, each occupation) is divided into seven parts: Typical day in that job; top 3 advantages (perks); job culture; qualification requirements; skills needed; the field (employment prospects and demand); and Michael's experience.
