  • (3/5)
    An enjoyable read even if it was was for work, not pleasure. This book would have been very handy many years ago and will be useful this year.
  • (3/5)
    The good thing is that this book offers a methodology and some tools to help people define what kind of job they could next go for. There also are some useful pieces of advice in there (such as: the only goal of a resume is to get you invited).It is a very American book which assumes that job-seekers and potential employers work from an American mindset in a highly-developed and transparant capitalistic society. 'Personal re-invention' isn't a strong value in Europe, and employers might not find certain re-inventions credible, nor be willing to employ people at a much lower level than their previous salary. Research on salary levels is probably also going to be much more difficult outside of the US. The two things that bothered me most, is that the book tries to be the final career re-orientation book for everyone, frequently giving examples such as "so it turns out that the career that would make you happiest is welding". Lots of respect for welders, but mid-career executives often have a much more diffuse skill set than manual labourers, and their career analysis tools might arguably need a bit more sophistication and allow for more parameters.The other one is found in the 70 pages Appendices, where suddenly it is stated that our First Mission in Life is "to know God, and to see His hand in everything". I find that kind of surreptitious religious indoctrination by advice-givers morally dubious, not to say objectionable.

    great advice for how to approach picking a career. it makes sense to think about this stuff instead of falling into a career without thought. there's a lot of good reasons to read this at any age.

    What Color Is Your Parachute? is the world’s most popular job-hunting guide with more than ten million copies sold. Dick Bolles updates it annually to serve his audience best. The intended audience: job hunters, self-starters and others interested in labor economics, matching demand and supply. Technology changes, websites come and go. Since What Color Is Your Parachute? not only contains a very detailed step-by-step plan to set up a complete profile of yourself and prepare yourself for job hunting, it also has numerous examples, references and tips to be far more effective than fellow people looking for a job by merely scanning job postings or sending out colorless resumes.You'll learn what the parachute flower (through the The Flower Exercise), networking, confident interviewing and salary negotiation can do to boost your profile, get your dream job and not frustrating the financial result.For the returning war veterans, there is a new twenty-page appendix this year, specifically addressing their unique needs. As one of the other appendices Bolles shares his powerful testimony on personal mission as a Christian. While examples are written and provided from a U.S. perspective, the Flower Exercise can be used globally. Many other tips & tricks will help people from other geographies as well. The book's a companion to a series of exercises instead of a text book. Get into action!

    I found this the best careers advice book I ever read, at the moment I last took a serious career shift, in late 1998. The summary of the advice is as follows: 1. Know your best and most fulfilling transferable skills. 2. Know what kind of work you want to do and what field you would most enjoy working in. 3. Talk to people who are doing the work you want to do. Find out how they like the work, how they found their job. 4. Do some research, then, in your chosen geographical area on those organizations which interest you, to find what they do and what kinds of problems/challenges they or their industry are wrestling with. 5. Then identify and seek out the person who actually has the power to hire you for the job you want; use your personal contacts – everyone you know – to get in to see him or her. 6. Show this person with the power to hire you how you can help the company solve its problems/needs/challenges and how you would stand out as one employee in a hundred. 7. Don't take rejection personally. Remember, there are two kinds of employers out there: those who will be bothered by your handicaps – age, background, inexperience, etc. – and those who won't be and will hire you, so long as you can do the job. If you get rejected by the first kind of employer, keep persevering until you find the second. 8. In all of this, cut no corners and take no shortcuts. Words to live by.

    Considering our economic hits right now, this books seems quite essential to many Americans. I read this book and much of it may come off as common sense when hunting for a job, but the author really does offer a plethora of options when pursuing jobs or careers. This book is a great guide when dealing with that treacherous job hunt that seems to annoy more than inspire us. I definitely recommend this book for anyone of any age of any field. It's that broad and that helpful.

    This book is the defacto job hunting book. While I haven't got a job yet, I can see what it teaches is sound. I am going to be following the steps over the next few weeks. Hopefully, it will work. :-) Stay tuned.Is this book just for those looking for a job? Absolutely not! I wish I would have read this book a couple years ago. Mr. Bolles has great advice for those who have jobs and know that someday they may have to look for a job. I can't imagine anyone today, other than the self-employed, who won't be in this situation eventually. Business doesn't offer lifetime employment anymore. Therefore, you better arm yourself and be prepared. If you wait until you need this book, you are too late. There are steps everyone should take as they work to make sure they can get the next job quickly. Who knows, you may even find a better job along the way. Save yourself the pain of being out of work.

    The Parachute book has been a standard work for many years now. I was managing a bookstore years ago when the first edition of the book hit the shelves. Over the years it has grown from a quirky curiosity to a standard in the industry. This particular edition now is twelve + years behind and I suspect that a newer version would offer some better insights and advice.
