What Color Is your Parachute?

As I was reading this crap, I cried out, “Why do I subject myself to these books?” The Max sagely pointed out that I was seeking an answer, and leaving no stone unturned. Well, consider this book crossed off the list, with zero actionable bits.
Filled with common sense items about the importance of networking, the necessity to ask for the job at the end of the interview, the smart process of not blanketing the city with resumes but targeting a few companies for your efforts. Nothing groundbreaking here. I won’t belittle him his chapter on how to use the Internet, either.

* Analyze my Career
* John Holland’s Self-Directed Search (recommended as the “queen of tests” by the book, whatever that means. Awful looking website.)
* CareerPlanner.com‘s test
* Career Interests Game
* Career Key
* Career Tests at HotJobs
