Richard N. Bolles New book What Color is your Parachute 2015

I wish to thank Blogging for Books for a free copy of this book in order to post an honest review.  The reason I chose this book is because at age 47, I finally received my Bachelor's Degree!  What everyone needs to know in this new version of "What Color Is Your Parachute 2015," is that to get a job in this era and in the future, the way to go about it is clearly written by the author.  Bolles gives in chapter two some great advice, go ahead and google your name.  "Since 2008, or even before, there's anew resume in town, and it's called Google."  Everyone has a chance to join free social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter, and others to create a great portfolio, business, reputation and resume. One big tip to do is research the job you are applying for so that when the interview comes, you are prepared to answer questions about their organization.  Most helpful to me as well as anyone is the flower where you also can narrow down all that is needed to included in your personal profiles, portfolios, and the exercises that help you gain value to prospective employers. Chapter ten talks about making career changes with links and resources to help anyone make the transition.  This is a great resource book to keep or give to a new graduate.  I admire Richard N. Bolles for such great expertise in the 100 best nonfiction books according to Time Magazine.  © 2014 Jackie Paulson

    Hello. I have the 2015 copy because a therapist recommended it. I think I’ve read to chapter 2 or 3 so far. It’s not the job hunting or resume building that I am interested in, it’s the “how do I figure out what I am ‘cut out’ to do, if not what I am doing now?” My impression is that it’s suppose to help people figure out ‘what they should be doing’, not how to find a job. Am I right? Are there some answers for me?

    What Color Is Your Parachute?: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers by Richard Bolles is the best job-hunting book I read so far! What makes it better is the author Richard Nelson Bolles is also a Christian. By reading this book, I understand more about the new job search techniques. I guess the hard part is really practicing it cause networking IS hard. I really appreciate the chapter about job interviewing, letting me know how it is like a “date,” so I won’t be as nervous. I think either way, you will still be nervous since our natural tendency is for the other person to like us whether we are compatible with each other or not. Kind of like I still rather every employer would want to hire me whether I’m fit for the job or not.
