Job-Hunting Online, A Companion to What Color Is Your Parachute? by Mark Emery Bolles & Richard Nelson Bolles. Have you seen our Online Resources page? Picture that page, multiplied by 188! (the number of pages in the book) Some of the resources I list on that page were originally brought to my attention through this book. The key difference is that they offer a great deal of explanation of each site, why they like the site, and what you can expect from the site. In addition to the links and explanations, they have pages of their own thoughts and advice on each topic throughout the many chapters in the book. It's nice because you can view this book both as a business book you can look to for advice, as well as for reference material. This is a good one to have in your library.
Richard Nelson Bolles, Author of "What Color Is Your Parachute?" co-wrote this book with his son, Mark Emery Bolles. You can listen to our interview with Mark here:

What Color Is Your Parachute? 2014: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers by Richard Nelson Bolles. The Parachute series has been a staple of business strategy and career change for many, many years. We were very proud to call Richard Bolles of friend of Job Talk. Published in 22 languages and 26 countries, and with over 10 million copies sold, What Color is Your Parachute? has helped millions discover their unique gifts, skills, and interests and land a job--even in hard times.
This 2014 edition of “[one of] the 100 best and most influential [nonfiction books] written in English since 1923,” according to TIME.com, is refreshed with up-to-the-minute statistics, job-field analyses, and advice on social media and search tactics (including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Skype, Yelp, and YouTube). However, Parachute’s core message remains intact: WHAT, WHERE, and HOW.

For Web Hosting, I use WebHostingHub.com. As you could imagine, I did exhaustive research before choosing a webhost for this website, and WebHostingHub.com had the highest recommendations, has actually won an award for hosting blog sites, specifically with Joomla. My experience with their customer service in getting this site set up has truly been spectacular. Currently it's $4.99 per month. I found it to be the highest quality service for one of the lowest prices. If you are considering hosting your own site, put them on your list of places to check out.
