Side note: Over twenty years ago, I saw What Color is Your Parachute in my college library. I thought to myself what a stupid name. Now I wished I would have picked up the book them. It would have save me so much time and money.
The format is the same comfortable version that the book has used for years, but it is totally updated to include all of the emerging technology jobs.
I advise a number of young adults in various roles, and I find this book is very, very useful. It is not an Oracle, and the recommendations are not infallible, but it does get the conversation started.
The book does a good job at getting the job seeker thinking about some of the other key factors that he or she might miss otherwise.
A very useful book, a classic!
