Project Brief: Entrepreneur & Former Business Owner Resume

This example business owner resume that we wrote for an entrepreneurial former business owner 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 business owner 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 overqualified, and they also may worry that the entrepreneur is just passing time until the next good business opportunity.

In this resume for a former business owner, 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.
