What Color is Your Parachute?

A Practical Manual For Job-hunters And Career-changers

By Richard Nelson Bolles

From Amazon's product page: This 2013 edition of "[one of] the 100 best and most influential [nonfiction books] written in English since 1923," according to TIME.com, is refreshed with up-to-the-minute statistics, job-field analyses, and advice on social media and search tactics. However, Parachute's core message remains intact: WHAT, WHERE, and HOW. What do you most love to do? Where do you most love to do it? How do you find such a job and persuade those employers to hire you? Career and business guru Richard ("Dick") N. Bolles, who coined the terms "informational interview" and "transferable skills," demystifies the entire job-search process, from resumes, interviewing, networking, salary negotiation, career coaches, how to start your own business, and more.
