Odd Jobs in an Odd Economy: A Reality Blog by Daniel McLeod

Editor’s Note: Discussions of the worst resumes ever lead naturally to “What was the worst job you ever had?” Enter our intrepid writer and reporter Dan McLeod, who agreed to put pen to paper and document the worst jobs he’s encountered since graduating. In this diary of the odd, Dan gives us some jobs to remember, if not to envy. When you take the collection as a whole, you can understand why people say that a college degree isn’t what it used to be. But you also get the sense that Dan may yet triumph, and that the Zen of odd jobs is more than just collecting stories. - Jon Reed
