“We were thrilled when the author, Richard Bolles, said that he was excited about including our full OMAQ© tool into ‘What Color Is Your Parachute – 2008” commented Tom O’Neil, Managing Director of CV.CO.NZ (NZ) Ltd. “This guide has been the ‘gold standard’ of career search for the last 35 years, so we are very excited that as a New Zealand business, we are impacting people internationally, in a positive and life changing way!” Tom adds “We have a decent section of the guide dedicated to our OMAQ©, with a very generous introduction by the author introducing both myself and CV.CO.NZ to its readers.”

‘What Color Is Your Parachute’ has been a steady global franchise and is released each year, ensuring it includes leading trends in international career management.
