What Color Is Your Parachute? 2017 by Richard N. Bolles

Getting a job is hard! There is always something that we forget when going for an interview, having no idea how to show up and communicate with the employer to have them want to hire us! Well, if this is the case with you then I would have to suggest the book, What Color Is Your Parachute? 2017 by Richard N. Bolles. It's actually a cute title, but really it's a book that will give you the guidance to win any interview and reduce the need to job hunt because you will successfully achieve the job you want. That is if you take note of all the excellent tips and information inside this book!

There are so interesting tips inside, each done in a way that it isn't boring or looks complicated to read. It's actually so colorful that it makes me interested, to learn how to get a job I want! Some of this info will cover how the job world worked way back then and how it works now. By saying that, I do agree that now all the employer has to do is Google the person online before hiring. They can see from linkedIn or other social sites the person they are hiring and how they really acted in their other jobs or how highly rated they are.Therefore, it's always a good thing to look the part online and off when going for a job and this book will help you get there. 

Some more information covered would be the questions you'll be asked and how to respond, as it's a huge test the entire interview and also when you completed the interview to remember to send a thank you. That extra ending touch, a thank you card or something kindly sent is a nice way to win them over!  Finally, there is so much more than the recent books covered, I'm sure since it's 2017 and even though I never read the others, I'm sure it has a few more additions added which are up to date. So just know you won't be left in the dark when it comes to interviews and how to have your resume online and off showing the right stuff the employers want to see and know about. I really found this book to be a great new guide for 2017, very up to date and something that will help me and anyone who is interested in acing the interview or finding that career you want, make it happen!
