The first step towards achieving career stability is to accept that you can't have a stable executive job - but you can have stable, continuous executive employment.
What do I mean? You might work one executive job over 10 years, or three executive jobs continuously over 10 years. In today’s new world, both are considered stable since both are continuous executive employment.
You need to remain in demand… You need to be employable.
In our modern, global economy, executive job security needs to be redefined as taking the steps to ensure that you can always land an executive job - not simply staying in the same job for a long period of time.
How do you ensure that you are continuously employed and creating executive job security?
First, you create demand for what you do by factually documenting your wins, and then broadcasting these wins to remind your employer and the competition that you are at the top of your game in what it is you do.
Second, you leverage the peculiarities of the current job market to stand out from the competition and capitalize on hidden opportunities. Continuous employment is about consistently attracting the right attention and organically building your network - whether you're actively looking for a new job or not. You want to build it before you need it.

"I was searching for a job over the course of 9 months.
I had 40 interviews and while prospective employers told me I was impressive, I was not getting any offers, This was such a frustrating experience.
I heard about Chameleon Resumes and signed up for a coaching session. During my coaching session my coach was able to quickly assess what I was not doing and help me understand what I needed to do to win people over and articulate my story.
I listened to everything my coach told me and I got the job offer of a lifetime!
I was so impressed with my coach and the entire support team, best financial investment of my life.
Thank you for helping me over the finish line!! "
"Thank you so much for connecting your team with me today. Your one-hour consultation on interviewing strategies and prep was so informative and I predict - game changing.
We went through STAR preparation and implementation, the good ol' elevator pitch, ageism concerns, and yes, the emotional topic of salary, too. They covered so much with me.
I feel equipped and prepared should another interview opportunity come my way. I have much to practice and fine-tune now. Before my call with your team, I felt "okay'ish." Just "okay'ish".
Further, she spoke with me about networking with someone who already offered me a "no". It was advice I genuinely needed and appreciated.
Everything your company has done with and for me has been amazing and has boosted my confidence level tremendously. It is very clear to me that you and your team are experts.
Lisa Rangel and her team of professionals did an excellent job helping me market myself to prospective employers and company partners. Shortly after her help, I received and accepted a partnership offer with a fortune 500 financial services firm. I've also referred her to my adult children when they were looking for a career move. I highly recommend Lisa and her team to anyone thinking of a career move.
