With timeless advice, up-to-the-minute insights, and more than ten million copies sold over fifty years, the world’s most popular and best-selling career guide is fully revised and expanded for 2022.
“One of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular.”―Fast Company
In today’s challenging job market, as recent grads face a shifting economic landscape and seek work that pays and inspires, as workers are laid off mid-career, and as people search for an inspiring work-life change, the time-tested advice of What Color Is Your Parachute? is needed more than ever.
This edition has been fully revised for 2022 by Vanderbilt University Career Center director Katharine Brooks, EdD, with modern advice on the job-hunt strategies that are working today, such as building an online resume, making the most of social media tools, and acing virtual interviews. Building on the wisdom of original author Richard N. Bolles, this edition updates the famed Flower Exercise (which walks job seekers through the seven ways of thinking about themselves) and demystifies the entire job-search process, from writing resumes to interviewing and networking.
With the unique and authoritative guidance of What Color Is Your Parachute?, job-hunters and career changers will have all the tools to discover―and land―their dream job.

First of all, there were at least four or five occasions when I got an error message stating that I would have to go back to the Amazon website and download the book again. It was not possible to use the book at all without doing so. Amazon recommended reducing the font size, which I did, but the problem persisted.
Secondly, when I used the "go to" feature and went to page 148, then when I would try to go to the next page, it would take me back to page 124 instead. I tried this countless times on numerous occasions and it always happened. So, then I decided to use the "go to" feature to get to page 149. But whenever I tried to do that, it took me directly to the end of the book. This always happened on many attempts. The only way to access page 149 was to go to the beginning of the chapter and flip through every single page. Chapter 6 starts on page 110, so that was 39 pages I had to flip through one at a time.
Thirdly, some pages, like the example of how someone else did the flower exercise, were just too small to read on the Kindle version, and I am not aware of any way to make it larger.
I have never experienced these first two issues with any other ebook ever, and I read 66 books in 2021, most of which were ebooks. On Amazon, this book is specifically listed as "Great on Kindle", so I expected better. I contacted Penguin Random House weeks ago, but no one has gotten back to me.
