'Parachute' Job-Hunting Guide on Interactive Multimedia CD


BumbleBee Technologies has announced that What Color Is Your Parachute?, the best-selling career guide by Richard Nelson Bolles, is now available as an interactive CD-ROM in multi-user and network versions. Kent Plunkett, president of BumbleBee Technologies, which developed and publishes the What Color Is Your Parachute? CD-ROM, said this product is a natural evolution of a phenomenal book.

"Everyone in the career industry agrees this is simply the most effective careerplanning method ever devised," said Plunkett. "That is why the book has sold over 6 million copies. Now, as a software application designed for career centers, it will be even more powerful and useful to the job hunter and career changer."

This new multimedia CD-ROM version includes hours of instructional video and audio from Bolles. It walks the user through the self-analysis steps necessary to find the right career direction, as well as valuable tips on resume writing, networking, interviewing techniques, and negotiating salary. It also includes an online connection to the most useful job and career sites posted on the Internet with a personal review by the author regarding their value and how he rates them.

The core of the book, a series of indepth exercises designed to match skills with interests and career options, formerly required pen and paper to complete. It can now be done far more effectively using powerful interactive multimedia instruction.
