A must for career changers: What Color Is Your Parachute


New member
When I was looking for a fresh start in my career, What Color is Your Parachute by Richard Boles really helped me figure out what my needs were from a job, what invigorated me in a workplace, and how do get ahead in the modern workplace. His famous “Flower Exercise” really helps you drill down to what you need from a job: the people around you, the physical environment, your skills and knowledges, the geography and salary, and finally your purpose. What I really appreciated was the holistic view of what you need and encouraging you to seek that out, rather than say ‘this is the job you want, so you must become this or put up with this”.
