With the way the economy is, jobs are challenging to find. The landscape of the job search has materially changed in the last five years, with new tools like LinkedIn and old tools like networking even more valuable.
One tool that has kept pace with the times is What Color Is Your Parachute by Richard Nelson Bolles. This was recommended to me when I graduated college. Mr. Bolles updates the book every year, completely rewriting it and making sure that the new tools are clearly explained. His explanation of how to create a useful network for yourself is highly useful.
