What Color Is Your Parachute?

A talk with author Richard Bolles
Event detail

Meet Richard Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute? "People are still finding their dream jobs."

Parachute was honored as one of 25 Books That Have Shaped Readers' Lives by The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. In 2011, Parachute was named by Time magazine as one of the All-Time 100 Best Nonfiction Books:

"The recent U.S. financial crisis has unfortunately forced many Americans to hunt for a new job or change their career, both of which involve skill sets that rust quickly. Luckily there's What Color Is Your Parachute? — originally self-published by Richard N. Bolles in 1970 — which has been one of the world's most popular employment guides for 40 years. It has been published in more than 20 languages and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Bolles stands out for packing information that's both practical and profound, and he covers the entire employment process, from how to successfully search for a new position to how to negotiate salary. Readers learn the basics — where to find a job, how effective various job-hunting methods are — but are also taught how to best match their personal hobbies, skills and passions to potential professional opportunities."

Event sponsored by the Jobs & Career Center of the San Francisco Public Library.
