Overview

What Color is Your Parachute? has been Ten Speed's best-selling book for nearly three decades, and it continues to be the job-hunter's bible—even in times of a strong, robust economy, when conventional wisdom says "Job-hunting books don't sell." Parachute is a fixture on best-seller lists, from amazon.com to Business Week; has well over six million copies in print; and exists in ten languages around the world.

For those who have not read an updated version in recent years, here is a reminder of why, in the words of Fortune magazine, "Parachute remains the gold standard of career guides": Parachute is always current and up to date, with tips about job-hunting on the Internet being the latest evidence of this.

It works in conjunction with a Web site, www.JobHuntersBible.com, and a companion book by the same author, Job-Hunting on the Internet. It discusses what has changed about the job market, and the new attitudes that are required in order to survive therein. It aids career-changers, as well as job-hunters, and has a detailed step-by-step plan for identifying a new career, as well as more detailed strategies for locating just the job you want in the geographical area of your choice. It has a detailed description of interview questions, and what kinds of answers the employer is looking for, plus salary negotiation strategies.

I used WCIYP in 1979 - decided to return to school to become a physician. WCIYP was responsible for this vocation entering my scope of possibilities. I never in a million years would have thought of it myself. Once my 'true vocation' was found, the rest was easy.
