I have the 2002 and 2009 editions of this book. It’s packed with informative tips for job searching. It’s definitely a tool I refer to when helping job seekers. Here’s how the book is described:
Still the best-selling job-hunting book in the world, WHAT COLOR IS YOUR PARACHUTE? is the most complete guide for first-time job seekers as well as second and encore careers changers.
For more than three decades, it remains a mainstay on best-seller lists, from Amazon.com to Business Week to the New York Times, where it has spent more than six years, and it has been translated into 20 languages. The 2009 edition is an even more useful book, with its updated, inspiring, and detailed plan for changing readers’ lives. With new examples, instructions, and cautionary advice, PARACHUTE is, to quote Fortune magazine, “the gold standard of career guides.”
If you have experience using this book to help you with your job search, it would be great if you could share your insight on the book and how it did or didn’t help you.
