Job-Hunting Online 6th edition

When using the Internet in your job hunt, there are some things that you must know:

  • Why are job sites like Monster and Careerbuilder so stunningly ineffective?
  • How can you be sure  your resume survives the elimination process?
  • How do you find the information that search engines like Google can’t?
  • How can you tell the difference between a genuinely helpful job board, and a website designed only to collect resumes?
  • What is the relationship between email and texting? When is each useful for your job hunt?
  • When are hobby forums more helpful than business networking sites?
  • How is your privacy being routinely compromised as you browse the Internet?
  • When is the Internet not helpful when job-hunting?
  • What is the fatal flaw of all social networking sites?


The new 6th edition of the What Color Is Your Parachute? Guide to Job Hunting Online not only answers these questions and many more, but shows you how to comprehensively and effectively use the Internet for all aspects of your job-hunt.

This companion to What Color Is Your Parachute?, the best-selling job-hunting book in the world, has been completely rewritten for our changing times. Job Hunting Online shows you how to quickly find the data that will be most helpful to you, including how to identify and research the places where you will most enjoy working, how to leverage the power of social networking sites, and how to use your Internet time most effectively, avoiding common pitfalls and positioning yourself for success. This new edition also has hundreds of updated website recommendations and descriptions.
