What Color is your Parachute

Author: Richard Bowles

Year Published: 1970

What Others are Saying:

  • Best career guide I've ever read. It encourages people to think hard about their skills, talents and personalities -- really, to reflect on what truly makes them happy -- and provides a road map for how to find a job that fits well with their unique gifts and temperaments. It makes the sometimes overwhelming question of "what career should I follow?" (a variation on "what should I do with my life?") seem far more answerable and manageable.
  • This book describes the entire process of finding a job.
