I recently signed up for Blogging for Books and received What Color is Your Parachute 2016 by Richard N. Bolles complementary in exchange for a review here and on their site.
As someone who has many interests and doesn't see myself being in only one field my entire life, I figured checking out this book was a good fit for me.
It's broken down into two main topics--searching for a job, interviewing and salary negotiations and finding out what you are good at and like to do.
I found both sections to be extremely useful and it taught me a few new things I hadn't read before, especially about searching for a job.
I really liked the five questions an employer is concerned about during an interview. He broke that section down into simple language to really help you prepare for a nerve-racking interview.
I definitely can see myself coming back to this book as a great reference one to use for job searching, interviewing and self-assessment. I would highly recommend it for that person in your life struggling to find their path or the recent grad who needs a little insight into the changing and competitive world of job searching.
My rating: 4.5 stars. Definitely worth purchasing!
