A classic book on this topic (still being updated anually I
believe) is "What Color is Your Parachute" (don't have the
author's name handy, but it should be easy enough to find
through bookstores, online book sellers, and probably libraries).
The author is Richard Nelson Bolles, and the publisher is Ten Speed Press.
If you search for him on the net, you'll find oodles of stuff.
