The Best $18.99 + Tax You Can Invest in Your 2013 Job Search


Books
can be dangerous.  The best ones should be labeled  “This could change your life.” ~ Helen Exley

 

For many years, I have
received a copy of What Color Is Your Parachute? A Practical
Image - parachute 2013 Manual for
Job-Hunters and Career-Changers 
by Richard N. Bolles as a special holiday
gift. Just yesterday, I was given the 2013 Edition. I love this book and I love
reading through it each year. As a career management professional, I routinely
recommend this book to my clients, as well as Job-Hunters Survival
Guide
, also by Dick Bolles. The Parachute book has been
around since the 1970’s – yes, some 40+ years ago – and to this day, I am
always surprised when I hear a client say “Never heard of it.”  

If you are a job seeker
in 2013, I encourage you to give yourself a gift (Parachute 2013) this January. It will be a very
special gift. It will be a gift that teaches you a tremendous amount of information
about careers and job search. It will open your eyes to what you do not know
about the subject of career management. It will help you reset your thinking
about the strategy you may be using to find new employment. It may even change
your life! I hope so!

The 2013 Edition of Parachute includes a brand-new
transferable skills grid and other new inventions to help you, the job-hunter.
(And yes, the book will teach you what a “transferable skill” is, just in case
you don’t know). So, hop on Amazon, board a bus, or get in your car and go get
this book – today. Without further ado. It will be the best $18.99 + tax you
can invest in your 2013 job search.

Books
are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and
wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. 
~ Charles W. Eliot
