What Color Is Your Parachute
This book is the definitive career and job search manual of our century. It has been published so many times and in so many languages, there's a reason why people keep coming back. This book takes you through not only techniques on how to find a job, but also self-reflection and introspection on what job is best for your personal skills, values and interests.
What Color Is Your Parachute? - A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers
There is no book that is more vital to job-hunting in this economy than WHAT COLOR IS YOUR PARACHUTE? It has been honored and celebrated for nearly 40 years, but in our current global recession, the reason why it is so popular becomes painfully apparent: It works! People buy the book because it really, really works! Every year it has more timely and more helpful information than the year before, because it is updated, and often dramatically rewritten, for the current job market. But it always brings with it decades of experience and a worldwide network of contacts.
In good times, people use this book because it helps them find a new direction, change careers, and then move on with life. But it is in hard times that the book's true value is revealed. It teaches ways to find jobs when supposedly there are no jobs, and it provides a step-by-step plan (called the Flower Exercise) that gives people the edge over other job-hunters. Yes, in hard times like these, PARACHUTE becomes a lifesaver and a survival guide.
There's a reason this book is called the "job seeker's bible"!
What Color Is Your Parachute is the job seekers Bible!
