Kiwi Author Contributor To
Worlds Most Popular Career Guide

There is a strong New Zealand flavour to the latest edition of the worlds most popular career guide, ‘What Color Is Your Parachute’. Selling over 10 million copies internationally, this leading guide includes a six page section on CV development and interview tips, contributed by Auckland based CV creation specialists CV.CO.NZ.

CV.CO.NZ have developed a revolutionary tool entitled the O’Neil Major Achievements Questionnaire© (OMAQ©) to assist people changing jobs and careers, easily discover and ‘pull out’ examples of their working and personal achievements, thereby ‘selling themselves’ more effectively to potential employers in their CV and interview.

“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. Both a New York Times and Business Week best seller, the guide was recently chosen by the USA Library of Congress as ‘One of the 25 books that have shaped readers lives’.
