In a new edition of the classic career guide, What Color is your Parachute? 2012, Richard Bolles advises urgently, “Attitude is everything. But periodically attitudes need to be re-examined, and rethought. In this case, we must learn what attitudes are necessary for survival in this new world. Basically, they are: learning that what got you here, won't necessarily get you there; learning to focus on what is withinyour power, not what is not; learning to always seek alternatives, for everything you do; learning to pay more attention to the world around you and the world within you; learning to be inventive even in everyday tasks; learning to seek out a supportive community while job-hunting; and learning there is meaning to everything.” With this perspective, he shows readers the pathway of survival job-hunting step by step. His book is also available as a downloadable ebook from the library.
