âHow many jobs are out there, in this economy?â
âWhere do I go from here with my life?â
These are some of the questions at the forefront of the modern job-searcherâs mind. And they are thoroughly and thoughtfully answered with all-new chapters in the 2011 edition of What Color Is Your Parachute?, the best-selling job-hunting book in the world for more than three decades--in good times and bad. A longtime fixture on best-seller lists, What Color Is Your Parachute? features life-saving information that is updated each year to cater to the specific requirements of todayâs job market.
Career guru Richard N. Bolles leads job-searchers to find meaningful work. He asks, WHAT skills do you most love to use? WHERE--in what field--would you most love to use them? And HOW do you find such jobs without depending on agencies, ads, and online postings?
This book is not only about finding a job in hard times, itâs also about finding your passion. In the words of Fortune magazine:
âParachute remains the gold standard of career guides.â
What Color Is Your Parachute? is the worldâs most popular job-hunting guide, with 10 million copies sold, in more than 20 languages. Written by career guru Richard N. Bolles--who coined the terms âinformational interviewingâ and âtransferable skillsâ--this New York Times and BusinessWeek best seller answers such questions as:
