Publisher's Description

The 40th Edition. This is not your father’s Parachute; and not your mother’s, either. They’d be astounded at the changes. This book keeps building--in insight, helpfulness, relevance, and urgency--through new invention and information each year. And this year it’s the critical resource to help Americans (and others) get back to work.
 
For forty years now job-hunters and career-changers have been turning to this, the world’s most popular job-hunting book, confident that each new annual edition will give them the most up-to-date information about the job-market and how to find meaningful work--even in the midst of challenging economic times such as these.
 
This year’s edition of What Color Is Your Parachute? has been vastly rewritten, because job-hunting has increasingly become a survival skill. Career expert Richard N. Bolles describes the five strategies most needed to survive, and explains how to incorporate social media tools such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter into your job-search.
 
The new ideas are wrapped around the familiar core message of Parachute: WHAT, WHERE, and HOW, with an emphasis on finding your passion and identifying your best transferable skills. With fresh insights into resumes, networking, interviewing, salary negotiation, and how to start your own business, this book will give you the tools, exercises, and motivation you need to find hope, land a job, and fulfill your purpose in life. In the words of Fortune magazine:
 
"Parachute remains the gold standard of career guides."

Editorial Reviews

"No one has been writing best-selling career-advice books longer than Richard Bolles."
Wall Street Journal, 9/15/11

"What Color Is Your Parachute? is about job-hunting and career-changing, but it’s also about figuring out who you are as a person and what you want out of life."
Time
 
". . . one of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular."
Fast Company
 
"Bolles knows what he’s talking about: his practical job-hunting strategies are based on years of research, and best of all, they really work."
School Library Journal
 
"Ideally, everyone should read What Color Is Your Parachute? in the tenth grade and again every year thereafter."
Fortune
 
"There’s Parachute, and then there’s all the rest. . . . a life-changing book."
Career Planning and Adult Development Journal
 
"Parachute is still a top seller and it remains the go-to guide for everyone from midlife-crisis boomers looking to change their careers to college students looking to start one."
New York Post
