Book Review: What Color is Your Parachute? 2016

As I am currently preparing to be out of a job at the end of June, finding a new job is high on my list. Also, a higher paying job would be nice. Even though I’ve been offered my current position for a second year, I’d be out of a job in July and August.

So when I had the chance to get A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers: What Color is Your Parachute? 2016 by Richard N. Bolles, I decided it was a good decision.

It gives great advice, and useful information. Like the fact that job hunting takes much longer now, and the average job lasts a much shorter time. On top of that, getting the salary you want is now harder than ever.

Speaking of salary, I was super excited to see a whole a chapter on how to negotiate your salary.

This is a great read, and I now feel more prepared than ever. And seeing as how I had a whole class that was supposed to address finding a job in my last semester at Grad school, this is saying something.

4.5/5 stars 🙂

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
