LAWRENCE — Delta Epsilon Iota will host the free event “50 Jobs in 50 States, Exploring America’s Cultures, Careers, and Environments,” which will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, in the Kansas Union, Big 12 Room. University of Kansas students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

Daniel Seddiqui traveled all 50 states and worked 50 different jobs in 50 weeks. His mission was to explore the diverse careers, environments and cultures offered in America. He will speak to the KU community about his experience and share information about finding a career and understanding culture and lifestyle.

"What college student doesn't want to know that even if their plans don't work out they can find something that works for them? Daniel's experiences show us all there are alternatives to a more traditional career path,” said Josh Russell, DEI president.

The event is sponsored by Coca-Cola, University Career Center, Business Career Services Center, Engineering Career Center and Student Alumni Association.
