What Color Is Your Parachute?
IN THIS SUMMARY
The best-selling job-hunter's bible for decades, this indispensable resource is a complete handbook for people who are on a quest to find their mission in life, or at the very least, the next good job that will put food on the table. Whether you are a fresh graduate, never finished a degree, or are searching for your deeper calling after many years of work, this is the book for you. You may need a temporary job, but the book strongly suggests a major life-changing one! There are basically two types of job searches: the traditional, and the life-changing. The former requires the usual resume-matched-to-the-employer-formula. The latter begins with a weekend of honest soul-searching and really deep thought. The actual life-changing job hunt may take much longer. You must have adequate reserves of energy and determination to go on this hunt. But the result of the long search is well worth it. Why? Because the search for the "job of your dreams" is really the search for your true happiness...and you have every right to seek this happiness. You may enlist a family member or a good friend for encouragement and support in this major type of job search. This person will be your taskmaster, the one you can trust to follow up on your weekly progress, and will firmly reprimand you whenever you lose focus or give up too soon.
