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.

Michelle has a wonderful ability to pull lots of information into a concise, action-oriented resume. The first two people I sent mine to while networking both said WOW! I highly recommend her services.

I just wanted to thank you very much for your help. The resume is great and I can't believe that I did not do it sooner. It is a night and day difference between my old and new resume. After I received the resume the response went from 1 in 10 [originally] to 9 in 10 [with new resume]. I have accepted a position with a large insurance company less than 4 wks after I received the resume. Again, thank you very much and I am sure that I will be back to update my resume.

I would to thank you for the outstanding work you have done on my executive resume and cover letter. Both documents are perfect... In the future I don’t need to look to another company for updating my resume. I will only use the services of your company. The whole resume writing service is beyond comparison. I have never seeing such outstanding work, very friendly but high quality service.
