A Tandem Jump With The "Parachute" Creator

Ten Speed Press

The world of work continues to change, and so does the process of securing a new job. 

But the famous book What Color Is Your Parachute continues to evolve with the times. 

The original version of the book helped job hunters in the early 1970s. 

The book and original author Richard Nelson Bolles are still around, both constantly evolving. 

Dick Bolles himself joins us to talk about the concepts--and the success of the book series.
