Abstract:

"The first interview book from the What Color Is Your Parachute? career guru Richard Bolles. Interviews instill fear in many a job-hunter, but this empowering guide from the father of career development, Richard Bolles, reveals that interviews are really just conversations to determine if the work--and workplace--is a great fit for both parties. In the very first Parachute-branded book to focus on interviewing, Bolles merges decades of experience with the latest studies and job-market statistics to create an all-in-one guide for the whole process, from pre-interview research to elevator pitches to salary negotiation.
