Imagine this background check!

I first heard about this guy a few weeks ago and thought his idea was absolutely brilliant.

Job Market Tough? Man Finds 50 Jobs In 50 States

Daniel Seddiqui Works As Brockton Rox First-Base Coach

BROCKTON, Mass. — For a California man, the nation’s sour economy was making it tough to find work, but instead of giving up, he decided to take his resume on the road.

His mission: to work 50 different jobs in all 50 states.

Daniel Seddiqui, 27, said the resume wasn’t happening. The recent college grad had flunked no less than 40 job interviews for work in his field of economics.

Read the full story.

Think of the life experiences this man has acquired in just under a year.  He’s 44 weeks into his 50 state journey. Follow along through his home page.

Of course, as a background check guy, I immediately thought of what his employment verifications would look like.  A bar in New Orleans, a maple syrup(er?) in Vermont. A rodeo announcer in South Dakota and a coal miner in West Virginia. EmployeeScreenIQ is in Ohio. His tour with us? Meteorologist for a Cleveland TV station.

A tip of the hat to Daniel. We usually complete verifications in 2-3 days. Something tells me our clients would understand this one taking a bit longer!

  • That’s a fascinating story. Yeah, that would be funny to see the report for a company requesting recent verifications of his “last” few employers.
