OnMilwaukee.com has a bunch of articles that are a part of a series called "Shift Switch," which involves the writers taking a "shift" at a job that is very different from our usual editorial gig and then writing about the experience.
Over the years, I was a soda jerk inside a root beer barrel at Summerfest (claustrophobics, steer clear), worked with David Seebach as a magician's assistant (he sawed me in half and levitated me) and a diaper washer at a now-defunct cloth diaper company (one of the more disgusting activities I have ever done).
Now, I am looking to write another segment in the series, but first, I need to find a place where I can take a "shift" at a unique job. Do you have an interesting company or job that would allow an OnMilwaukee.com writer to give it a whirl for a few hours? If so, e-mail me.
