What Color Is Your Parachute 2004by Richard N Bolles
Synopses & Reviews
"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."
"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
For those who have not read an updated version of the bestselling job-hunting book in the world, this is a reminder of why, in the words of Fortune magazine, "Parachute remains the gold standard of career guides."
As well as a step-by-step guide to identifying your new career, using the Internet and other tools, this guide includes all the latest information about how to speed up a job-hunt or career-change. It also covers how to choose a career counsellor and useful Internet sites.
