Former Business Owner Resume

Purpose: Example resume written to help an entrepreneur return to traditional employment

Quick Resume Writing Tip: This example resume that we wrote for a client illustrates a technique that entrepreneurs can use when trying to return to traditional employment. This person had worked for himself for more than a decade, but was selling his business and wanted to land a new job in sales. When you write your resume it is crucial to know your audience and then frame your experience in ways that will show how you are the best person for the job. Entrepreneurs and business owners often have a tough time because the potential employer will be concerned that they are too independent to return to employment, often over qualified, and they also may worry that the entrepreneur is just passing time until the next good business opportunity. In this resume, we chose to emphasize all the aspects of the person’s experience that were relevant to sales and business development-related positions and to de-emphasize all the aspects that have to do with high-level business management.

I am more than pleased with my new resume! It is creative, eye-catching and captures my strengths and experiences. I am also impressed with your ability to be flexible with various ways to communicate with me throughout the process. Part of my reservation with updating my resume previously was that it would be difficult and time consuming. It wasn't and the end result was wonderful!

Morning, Michelle, I have cc’d you on an e-mail to Nancy several minutes ago. I think that note pretty well sums up my response to your inquiry about how things are going! It has been a pleasure to work with you and your company. You’ve got a great thing going there. Very professional, accountable and so easy to work with.

I really like the work you have done and I now understand how a pro like you can take a pretty good document to whole different level. Early on in my experience with your company, I was curious how my personal brand would come through. As my wife reviewed your work with me, she said ‘this is so YOU’. Mission accomplished! So, congratulations and thank you to you, Nancy, for a job well done. Please count me as a very satisfied customer and feel free to use me as a customer reference if the need should ever arise.
