Inventions in the book this year include a brand-new transferable skills grid, a novel way to discover what fields you would most like to work in, and a revamped version of his famed self-inventory instrument, the Flower Exercise. With new insights into resumes, networking, interviewing, and social media, What Color Is Your Parachute? has everything you need to dust off your motivation and find your dream job.
