Helping Students with Their Job Searches

Jarmon_1 Amy Jarmon, Assistant Dean for Academic Success Programs at Texas Tech University School of Law, offers a helpful recommendation to go along with the two exercises suggested in the Feb. 13 posting, "I'm Not in the Top Ten Percent!  I'll Never Get Hired!":

"I often recommend a book by Richard Bolles entitled What Color is Your Parachute?  The book comes out with a new edition each year.  Although it is written for any job seeker, it focuses on helping individuals determine their strengths, passions, and skills, which ties in with Exercise 2 [brainstorming and exploring one's own strengths].  It also focuses on informational interviewing which ties in with Exercise 1 [developing a list of contacts for job networking].  There is a website which acts as a supplement to the book: http://www.jobhuntersbible.com/."

Thanks, Amy (dbw)
