Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"WHAT COLOR IS YOUR PARACHUTE? HOT AGAIN, 30 YEARS AFTER DEBUT." So ran the headline this past October in the Seattle Times. Actually, it has been "hot"—the best-selling job-hunting book in the world—year after year, for more than three decades now, so much so that it is referred to as "the job-hunters? bible." Each year it is updated, and sometimes vastly rewritten, by the author, giving first-time and veteran readers alike something new to discover. For those who have not read an updated version in recent years, this is a reminder of why, in the words of Fortune magazine, "PARACHUTE remains the gold standard of career guides."
  • More than 8 million copies in print in 12 languages around the world.
  • The vastly updated format works smoothly with the author?s website, www.jobhuntersbible.com.
  • Includes the latest information about how to speed up a job-hunt or career-change.
  • Features a step-by-step guide to identifying your new career, using the Internet and other tools.
  • Offers detailed descriptions of interview questions (and the answers employers look for) along with salary negotiation strategies.
  • The Library of Congress named PARACHUTE one of the "25 Books that Have Shaped Readers? Lives."
  • The book continues to be a fixture on best-seller lists, from Amazon.com to Business Week. This year it has been, at times, among the 200 top selling books on Amazon?s list.
  • Review:

    "Bolles always goes beyond the routine, including things like useful Internet sites and how to select a career counselor. It?s virtually always the best-selling career book, and with good reason." Dave Murphy, former Careers Editor, San Francisco Chronicle
