'What Color is Your Parachute?', by Richard N. Bolles, is the best-selling job-hunting book in the world with over 10 million copies sold to date. Bolles has often been called a career guru, and his book -- first commercially published in 1972 -- is considered the job hunter's bible. He coined the terms "informational interviewing" and "transferable skills."

'What Color is Your Parachute?' is still going strong; the 2011 revised edition of the book was recently released. AOL was fortunate enough to interview Bolles to learn more about his personal career journey, his career wisdom, and the incredible success of his book.
