Summary
From Barnes & Noble: It began as a seventies word-of-mouth bestseller; now, forty years later, with ten million copies sold, Richard Bolles' What Color Is Your Parachute ranks as the most popular job-hunting book in the history of the world. Sharpened from year to year and decade to decade, this carefully conceived 384-page guidebook contains the current information you need to use Internet job-search and online social media sites more efficiently. In addition, readers can tap an update version of the book's valuable Transferable Skills Inventory and job-field exercises. A treasure trove for recent graduates and career-changers alike
