Review:

For nearly 30 years, "What Color Is Your Parachute?" has been the guiding light for those in pursuit of satisfying and fulfilling employment. This year's edition has been completely revised and rewritten and is designed to work in conjunction with the book's Web site. At the heart of Bolles's formula for finding the right job are two questions: What do you want to do? Where do you want to do it? Answer those and you're well on your way to finding the job you really want. Packed with time-tested advice, "What Color Is Your Parachute?" works as a good companion for those just starting out in the "real world" as well as for those who are thinking seriously about a career change. --Harry C. Edwards

From the Publisher:

The task of finding a job or changing careers has now become an expected and "repeatable" part of everyday life. This means learning and applying the tools to find a new job or successfully change your career must become a familiar part of one's working life. No one in the history of the job hunting industry has addressed this problem with as much imagination and original thinking as Richard Bolles. His work What Color Is Your Parachute? has been the all time best selling job-hunting guide ever published. Now it is available here on CD-ROM. The original book is without doubt one of the first truly interactive efforts in print. It is full of exercises that require the reader to conceive, write and then cut and paste bits and pieces describing themselves that will eventually turn into a collage of their life. While this was indeed a challenge in the print format, the task has now been greatly eased by using software to replace much of the manual elements of the printed version. Another major added value lies in the access to the ever-increasing value of Internet job hunting. The software provides descriptions and links to most of the important job listing sites and career counseling resources. There is even a direct link out to these sites from inside the program. The software also includes the complete version of the new 1998 edition of What Color Is Your Parachute? Twenty-six years later, it remains the gold standard for job hunters and career changers alike.
