What Color Is Your Parachute Book Review

A career is a funny thing. You can have a job for years and suddenly you realize that you hate your job and you really want to do something else. The other scenario is that you finish college, walk across the stage to receive that degree that you spend years working toward and then realize that now you have to find a job.

Either way, your hit with what feels like a ton of bricks. It is scary and confusing and you feel totally lost.

There are an incredible amount of career advice books on the market. Everyone, whether employed or unemployed, if asked, will be throw career advice your way.

What Color Is Your Parachute  by Richard N Bolles was recommended to me by very wise relations who have more experience in the working world and it’s pitfalls than I do.

It is at first a very overwhelming book. Mr. Bolles provides advice on everything related to the job search. Granted, not every recommendation he makes is for everybody.  But it is a very thorough book. I highly recommend it, especially if you are a new college graduate and have absolutely no idea on what job you need or want.
