Product Details


““Seddiqui gives a voice and hope to a generation of job seekers and graduates. His inspiring can-do spirit is contagious, and his quest puts the PATH in career path, the JOURNEY in journeyman. This is the best book by a bartending Amish-wood-woodworking, rodeo-announcing archaeologist that you’ll ever read.”
—Kelsey Timmerman, author of Where am I Wearing?
