There is always something that we forget when going for a job or have no idea how to show up and have the employer amazed to hire us! Well, if this is the case with you then I would have to suggest the book, What Color Is Your Parachute? 2017 by Richard N. Bolles. It's actually a cute title, but really it's a book that will give you the guidance to win any interview and job hunt. The book is full of interesting tips and done in a way that it isn't boring or looks complicated to read. It's actually so colorful that it makes me interested, to learn how to get a job I want! The inside has much information about how the job world worked way back then and how it works now. I do agree that now all the employer has to do is Google the person online before hiring. They can see from linkedIn or other social sites the person they are hiring and how they really acted in their other jobs or how highly rated they are. Therefore, it's always a good thing to look the part online and off when going for a job and this book will help you get there. You won't be left in the dark when it comes to interviews and how to have your resume online and off show the right stuff the employer wants to see and know about. I really found this book to be a great new guide for 2017, very up to date and something that will help me and anyone who is interested in Acing the interview or finding that career you want, make it happen!
