Reviews

Praise for What Color Is Your Parachute?: "One of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular."  --Fast Company "Ideally, everyone should read What Color Is Your Parachute? in the tenth grade and again every year thereafter."  --Fortune "What Color Is Your Parachute? is about job-hunting and career changing, but it's also about figuring out who you are as a person and what you want out of life."  --Time "Parachute is still a top seller and it remains the go-to guide for everyone from midlife-crisis boomers looking to change their careers to college students looking to start one."  --New York Post "It's basically the bible of career advice."  --US Department of Labor "Mr. Bolles continues to enrich and update it, expanding on concepts both universal and technical."  --New York Times
