After three years on the dole, knocked back from 40 interviews, the 27-year-old’s dreams of becoming a financial analyst were in tatters, the economics graduate decided ‘enough was enough’.

He left his home in California and travelled across the US, trying out a job peculiar to each state every week. 

In just 50 weeks, Dan went from being a down-and-out to an Arizona border patrol agent, a jazz conductor, a TV weatherman and even a Las Vegas wedding planner.

He is now writing a book about his adventure and hopes to get a job as a as a dietician.
