In 2005, one such graduate was Daniel Seddiqui, who’d earned a degree in Economics from the University of Southern California (USC). Unable to get a foothold in his targeted career, Daniel turned his disappointment into an adventure – working 50 jobs in 50 states in 50 weeks.

I was totally satisfied! My cover letter was perfect, no edits needed. I must say that I've never worked with a company that has been so professional and efficient. I am Australian and was a bit hesitant, as all countries do things differently, but I am so happy to have such a great resume and cover letter.
