Based on the book What Color is Your Parachute? by Richard N. Bolles, also known as the “job hunter’s bible,” the Parachute College Program will make a stop at Lafayette hosted by career services 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday on the Quad.

The Parachute College Program, designed to help students make the transition from college to life after school, serves as a mobile classroom and interviewing studio.

Registration for workshops on personal finance management and business life should be made at career services, Hogg Hall. Other activities will include business-card making and mock interviews. The interviews will be videotaped and the parachute staff will provide feedback. Students will learn how to effectively conduct job searches and prepare for interviews by identifying their strengths and weaknesses.

The event is intended to enhance students’ awareness of Lafayette’s Office of Career Services and how they can benefit from its programs.
