Dave Herman, 27, rang in 2013 as a correspondent for NBC’s New Year’s Eve show. It was his 100th job of 2012.
“It was just incredible,” he told the Daily News on Wednesday. “I can’t wrap my head around it, and I don’t think I ever will.”
The 27-year-old New Yorker’s previous gigs included working with “Goosebumps” author R.L. Stine, dog-walking and passing out flyers. Each job was chronicled on his blog, 100jobs1year.com.
Herman, a self-described actor, producer and writer, came up with the 100 jobs challenge when he realised he was swamped with freelance work in late 2011.
“I had booked five different jobs in a week,” he said. “And I thought, maybe I can make something of this. Maybe I can do 100 jobs in a year.”
He used temp agencies and the Internet to find work. Eventually, word-of-mouth helped him secure even more gigs.
Next, Herman is launching another creative project in March, called 10,000 Kevins, petitioning for Kevin Bacon to take him to lunch.
“I want to see if I can get 10,000 people named Kevin to sign a petition to get Kevin Bacon to take me to lunch,” he said.
