Has anyone else read 'What Colour Is Your Parachute'? Did it change your life or is it just a load of guff?

It is very very good.

I did it 30 years ago and thought it was very useful to identify my strengths and suggest suitable careers. As it was, i had just finished a very vocational degree in what could be a dull career, but carved my own niches so I could still be me. Glad to hear it is still around.

It's great. Helped me change direction and end up in the career I always wanted

It's good. Not necessarily life-changing, but it does help you focus on your strengths and preferences.

(Actually, I should have another go with it, 20 years on.)

Thanks ladies. To be honest I need all the help I can get right now, I'm desperate for either a career change or a sudden burst of confidence at least!
