What Color Is Your Parachute? 2018: A Practical Manual For Job-Hunters And Career-Changers Book Review

Job searching is hard, period. But Richard N. Bolles is trying to make that search just a little easier.

Last year’s edition, entitled, What Color Is Your Parachute? 2018: A Practical Manual For Job-Hunters And Career-Changers, is a practical and reliable guide for the job hunter. In the book, Mr. Bolles talks about everything from resumes to cover letters to figuring out your ideal job and helping those who are changing their careers midway through adulthood.

I initially read this book in 2014, when I needed comfort during the job hunting process. I re-read the book because I will be out of work as of one week from today and I needed that same comfort. In the last four years, the book has not changed (with the exception of references that were not available 5 years ago).  What I really appreciated about this book is that it both challenges the reader and provides support during a difficult time in their professional and personal lives.

I recommend it.
