For more than three decades, it remains a mainstay on best-seller lists, from Amazon.com to Business Week to the New York Times, where it has spent more than six years, and it has been translated into 20 languages. The 2009 edition is an even more useful book, with its updated, inspiring, and detailed plan for changing readers lives. With new examples, instructions, and cautionary advice, PARACHUTE is, to quote Fortune magazine, the gold standard of career guides.Hide synopsis
This is probably the best book I've ever read on changing jobs.
I was unemployed for a grand total of two weeks. I followed the book's advice to the letter: individualized resume for the job, cover letter per the webpage the book recommends, researched the cover letter on the company's website to tailor it to the job, was enthusiastic during the interview-which only took a week to get- because I'm older, and wrote two thank you notes after the interview.
I also got the job. If you haven't read it, buy this book.
