Odd Job Jack is an animated comedy about one guy’s misadventures in temporary employment and his quest to get a full-time life. In the year 2003, in an unnamed Canadian megacity, JACK RYDER (voiced by Don McKellar) searches for a way out of limbo. Twenty-five years old and fresh out of university – sporting a degree in sociology and shouldering a hefty student debt – Jack is decidedly unsure what he wants to do with the rest of his life. In fiscal desperation, Jack signs on at a temp agency – Odd Jobs Unlimited – where he finds himself placed in a variety of usual and unusual postion by Betty Styles, his ever-optimistic (and in Jack’s opinion, totally attractive) career counsellor. In every episode, Jack tries out a new job, introducing him to an array of interesting characters, unique experiences, and different perspectives on the working world.
