Well, what was happening in 1991 that set me to exploring this book. I think my organisation was being "Mckinseyed" and a fair few staff were leaving and I was considering my options. As I've finally come to review this book (some 30 years later), I've just discovered that i have the 1998 version sitting on my bookshelves so I might review it in more depth before I dispose of this version. To be fair, I found the book to be profoundly helpful. It gave me a whole new suite of ways of examining myself and where I wanted to go. Now I'm staring down the funnel of the end of life and a parachute is not so necessary if one has a national health scheme and superannuation. But I've used this book and subsequent versions of it. And I've used it effectively with some of my staff who we were undergoing yet another re-organisation...(read "forced-redundancies"). And the thing that struck me was that it really gave people a sense that they had options. This was not the end of the road. In summary, a really useful and helpful book. five stars from me. (Even if it is dated) ( )

I picked up a free copy of this book over the summer and read it more thoroughly than I have in the past. This is probably because I was about to start a new job search and needed some advice.

As always, the book provides much information to the job seeker entering a career or starting anew.

In this edition, there is much information about using the Internet and social media to find employment. I learned that 47 percent of company recruiters state that they seek applicants with social media pages. So, it's important to make a good impression with potential employers on social media.

The book suggests using LinkedIn to find "bridge-people" who can offer information about companies and suggest contacts. The book recommends using sites like Indeed and Glassdoor to find jobs.

Of course, the true benefit of reading What Color Is Your Parachute? is to gain access to many worksheets and job activities. I spent several hours filling them out and contemplating my ideal work environments, coworkers, and job tasks.

"The Flower" still exists--a centerfold in which job seekers may write down the results of all those hours of brainstorming and planning. The end result is the ability to create a sales pitch that is concise, yet emcompasses all the things you want in a future job or career.

Auf Seite 144 lesen wir: "Die meisten Menschen, die bei der Jobsuche oder bei der Suche nach ihrem Traumjob scheitern, scheitern nicht an fehlenden Informationen über den Arbeitsmarkt, sondern an fehlenden Informationen über sich selbst." Dieses Buch eignet sich wie kein anderes, mir bekanntes, dieses Defizit auszugleichen. Ich verschenke es regelmäßig an Menschen, die a) generell in den Beruf starten b) sich selbstständig machen wollen und c) die arbeitslos geworden sind. Es fasst generelle Überlegungen zur Berufswahl auf das Beste zusammen, ja es sollte im Grunde schon 3 Jahre vor dem Schulende gelesen werden.

Nirgendwo habe ich eine bessere Zusammenfassung dafür gelesen, sich selbstständig zu machen, d.h. die abwägenden Plus-Minus-Analyse für diesen Fall. Es heißt nämlich nicht, nie mehr auf der Suche nach Arbeit zu sein, sondern andauernd um Jobs bzw. Arbeit zu kämpfen. Nur ganz wenige haben die Kraft bzw. die umfassende Befähigungen, die man dazu benötigt. Franchisesysteme sind eine der Möglichkeiten, um das Einzelkämpferdasein etwas zu umschiffen, siehe Internettipps auf Seite 407.

Der Weg zum Traumjob führt tatsächlich zu einem selbst und dem Bewusstsein dafür, was man wirklich gerne machen würde. Der Abgleich mit den Möglichkeiten ist heute mit dem Internet immer besser möglich. Wichtig ist nach meinen Erfahrungen weniger das Geld, sondern die Begeisterung etwas zu tun bzw. etwas zu hinterlassen (Es wäre ein gutes Leben, wenn die Menschen mich nach meinem Tode folgendermaßen in Erinnerung behalten würden:... Liste Seite 211). Dabei spielen die sonstigen Belohnungen m.E. (über Geld hinaus, Seite 219) eine entscheidende Rolle. Z.B. Abenteuer, Respekt, Macht, Ruhm, Kreativ sein, anderen helfen. Wirklich überdurchschnittlich wird nur das bezahlt, was man selbst mit Begeisterung unternimmt.

Hervorragend die Merkregeln für das Vorstellungsgespräch, das - wie immer im Leben - aus einem gut fließenden Gespräch bestehen sollte. 50:50 meint, dass jeder zu 50% der 20 Minuten (Vorstellungsgespräche sollten nicht länger dauern) reden sollte, keiner länger als 2 Minuten. Wichtig ist, nie als Bittsteller, sondern als Arbeit-Geber zu verhandeln. Wichtig zu wissen ist, dass nur ein Drittel offener Stellen über Stellenausschreibungen in TZ oder Internet besetzt werden, alle anderen gehen über den verdeckten Stellenmarkt (u.a. auch über Headhunter, aber auch Selbstinitiativen). Tendenz: steigend. Bolles umfasst alle dafür notwendigen Überlegungen, bis hin zur Suche eines Berufs-Coaches.

Ein hervorragendes Buch, mit umfassendem Literatur-, Adressteil (u.a. Coaches) und Internetverweisen in Österreich, der Schweiz und D.

not bad. A novel approach to job hunting. It definitely doesn't waste your time which I appreciated. ( )

This book was there for me when I needed it. Wasn't surprised when I found out that the author was a former pastor. Giving no-nonsense, practical advice to the unemployed (or unhappily employed) was the ministry he was born for. ( )
