Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One hundred pages of lifesaving advice for people out of work. When over ten million people have needed help with their job-hunt—or with figuring out what to do with their life—there is one person they have turned to, more than any other. He is Richard N. Bolles, author of the #1 job-hunting book of all time, What Color Is Your Parachute? His name is well-known around the world. Just during the last twelve months, he has appeared in Time (“10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now,” March 2009), U.S. News & World Report (deemed “savior of the nations unemployed,” October 2008), NBCs Today Show (broadcast in April 2009), and many other publications and shows. His book was the #1 best-seller on BusinessWeeks paperback list as recently as last November.

Never has his advice been more sought than during these brutal economic times. He has responded by writing a completely new book: The Job-Hunters Survival Guide, designed particularly for people who are hanging on the ropes, who havent time to do a lot of reading but need help desperately—and now. Early reviews have called this little Guide “brilliant” and “tremendously helpful.”

Synopsis:

From the author of "What Color Is Your Parachute?" comes this timely and concise guide to assist recent college graduates as well as the millions of recently unemployed workers find new jobs fast. (Careers/Job Opportunities)
