LifeSwap, the beginning of a new reality

The dreaded question that every college student is asked. It is like nails on a chalkboard, it is the sound of Styrofoam rubbing together.  This question brings about the same anxiety that occurs when you are waiting for a balloon to pop.  That feeling of you know it is going to happen and when the balloon pops, it is going to make a loud noise but you are just waiting, trying to prepare so you are not startled.  Then, it happens.  The balloon pops. You jump, your heart is beating a little faster than before.  What is all of the fuss about though? It is just a balloon right? Similarly, this question is surely just a question?

This question comprised of only nine words and one question mark, causes extreme discomfort for students and recent graduates all over the United States.

What do you want to do when you graduate?

[Insert "deer in the headlights" look.]

The response that is given:  " Well, of course I would love to do something with my major, so I think I am going to apply to some local agencies.  I would also love to travel and expand my horizons so I might see what Iowa has to offer or maybe even New York."

The response that is being thought but is to rude to say:  "I DON'T KNOW. I HAVE SPENT THE LAST FOUR YEARS OF MY LIFE PRETENDING TO KNOW WHAT I WANTED TO DO. I JUST TOOK MY LAST FINAL EVER, NOW LET ME GO GET A BEER...or two."



Well friends, worry no more!  Thanks to LifeSwap, students, recent graduates or even those thinking about switching careers for a change of pace, can preview different occupations before making the commitment.

LifeSwap is a company that provides the opportunity for people to experience the lives of others. Curious about what it would be like to be a chef?  What about a yoga instructor?  Now it is possible to actually find out in real life.  LifeSwap allows a participant to shadow a host in any particular field.  The jobs range from working in a zoo, to managing accounts.  If neither of those appeal there are plenty of other options...a mime would be interesting.  Not looking for a job but would rather experience something completely different for a change?  LifeSwap is perfect for expanding horizons and pursuing passions.

In four easy steps, LifeSwap turns a dream into a reality.

  • Find a host

Search for a career or experience that perks some interest.  If an opportunity is not listed, LifeSwap is open to suggestions and ideas!

  • Book

Book the LifeSwap and wait for a confirmation from the host.

  • Interact

Once the swap is confirmed, discuss with the host about times, dates and duties of the experience.  LifeSwap provides a messaging service that makes it easy to communicate between participants and hosts.

  • Swap

Swap! It is that easy!

Not interested in shadowing but want to host?  LifeSwap has great features and perks for hosts.  A host can choose who he or she wants to swap with.  A professional photographer can also be sent to take pictures of the experience...for free!  Hosts also earn money through LifeSwap which they can either keep or donate to charity.  In addition, this is a great opportunity for businesses to expand their reputation and seek possible future employees.  Take a peek at some of the testimonials and videos from hosts about their experiences.

There is a price to pay for LifeSwap, literally there is a small price set by the hosts.  However, when searching for the perfect experience, the price is available upfront and typically reasonable for what the experience is.  Therefore in the end, the price is small.  How can you put a price on once in a lifetime opportunities?!

Go ahead! Explore all of the possibilities!
