December 4, 2000: JobHuntersBible.com
We got a little lost on this site, and not because navigation is difficult, but because there’s so much interesting stuff here to check out. Richard Nelson Bolles, guru behind the phenomenally popular What Color is Your Parachute?, is also the brains behind this helpful Web site.
We’ve always felt that Bolles’ approach in “Parachute” was particularly well suited to career changers, perhaps even more than to entry-level jobseekers. And JobHuntersBible.com is true to form, offering abundant information to those seeking to leave one career for another.
The site consists of Bolles’ guide to jobhunting on the Internet along with a collection of articles written by Bolles and two other experts. Many of the articles are excellent for career-changers, and the site also offers an advice column by Bob Rosner called “The Working Wounded” to help people better cope with the problems they face in their current jobs.
Few experts are as uniquely qualified to offer career guidance as Bolles is, so his site is a “must-see” for career-changers and, indeed, all jobseekers.
