Title: the 1996 What Color is Your Parachute?
Author: Richard Nelson Bolles

While outdated, this insightful book into searching for your next job or finding the career of your dreams was very interesting for me. A recommendation from my dad who used the same book when he was looking for a job, gave great points and ideas as to not only use the resources out there to find a job, but how to find out what your best and favorite skills are and how to apply them to a job.
Of course, being this edition was written in 1996, it heavily frowns upon using the internet as a viable resource and also believes resumes aren’t always necessary. Well now, in 2009, those are two required aspects to every job search in my opinion.
The books contains lots of examples, personal experiences, and activities you can use to become the best job hunter out there.
Not a bad book. I would recommend the updated version over this one.
