A Tennessee woman is in the middle of an interesting employment experiment.

Kieley Best is trying out a different job every week for eight weeks as part of the One-Week Job Program.

She is currently on her sixth job, working at the Dallas Apparel and Accessories market.

Best is one of three women participating in the One-Week Job Program, which was started by Sean Aiken, who graduated from college in 2007 and then spent 52 weeks working 52 different jobs.

This year, he launched a national video competition in search of "jobbers" to follow in his footsteps.

"I'm really enjoying traveling across the U.S., and I've met a lot of great people, and I'm really branching out and trying different things that I've never tried before," Best said.

So far, she has worked as an e-commerce specialist in Wyo., as a dental assistant and bike shop worker in Tenn. and as a backpacking guide in Spokane, Wash.

"My favorite job has definitely been the coffee roaster down in Athens, Ga.," she said.

The college junior is blogging about each experience and posting photos. She said she would recommend the experience to everyone if they can.

"I think the worst possible thing would be to turn 50 and always wonder, 'What if?,' so I don't want to live my life in 'what if' land," she said. "I want to actually try the things that I'm interested in."
