JobHuntersBible
http://www.jobhuntersbible.com
He's a preacher. He's a career counselor. He's a warm washcloth over the eyes of the desperate unemployed. Dick Bolles is the author of the best-selling job-hunting book, What Color Is Your Parachute? This site is offered as a supplement to that volume. As always, Bolles encourages a thorough technique: to understand oneself and what one wants out of life before running off and blindly applying for a job. On this note, he offers links to self-assessment sites and advice about how to use them. Bolles underscores the need to research employers and make personal connections in the job search. This approach, Bolles asserts, will lead not only to a new job, but personal satisfaction and growth.
