Jersey City, NJ – Lisa Rangel is on a mission to teach others how to land a job fast. Lisa is the founder of Chameleon Resumes and The Job Landing Academy. Chameleon Resumes specializes in executives and senior professionals searching for positions with six-figure salaries and above. Job Landing Academy is dedicated to more traditional professionals.
“Too many people are paralyzed by the ability to market themselves,” says Lisa. “They are amazing, smart, competent in every way, but when it comes to looking for a job, they crumble.”
As a search recruiter for 13 years, Lisa was always writing resumes. Her income was dependent on presenting a candidate to a company that had an open job. Lisa only got paid if the candidate got hired, so the resume had to reflect what the client wanted to see in the candidate to be incentivized to interview them.
In 2009, amid the financial crisis, Lisa was let go from her job but swiftly transitioned to writing resumes on her own.
“That's how I learned how to do resumes in a direct response way,” recalls Lisa. “There were a lot of people that year who needed them. I started charging for them and it kind of just took off from there.”
While most people develop one resume they can send out to 50 different positions, Lisa recommends taking the time to customize your resume for each job application.
Lisa says too many people go into an interview searching for approval when they should come to it from a stance of two equal partners seeing if there is a mutual interest.
