It used to be that executives had job security. Not anymore.

More than 41 percent of executives over age 40 devote at least five hours a week to career planning, according to a survey by Netshare Inc., a career coaching and research firm in Novato, Calif. Examples: tracking competitors’ moves, following industry trends and reviewing career goals.

“Every manager over 40 should ask, ‘If my position were open today, would I get hired?’” said Dave Theobald, CEO of Netshare.

“These people need to keep tabs on what companies require in terms of background and experience. And they should keep up with their peers’ skill sets or, better yet, exceed them.”
