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.

Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. I have been busy interviewing. I am on the brink of an offer in Boston and Pittsburgh. Boston is the role I'm hoping for. It is a great role with a world leading paper manufacturing company. I believe the resume and cover letter you prepared was very helpful in my job search. It clearly was far better than what was proposed by xxxxxxxxx consultants - the outplacement firm that I was working with. I got a lot of attention from headhunters after the first wave of your blast e-mail. Many discussions but nothing that came from it -- mostly match issues. Thanks for your support and I will keep in touch.

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 want to compliment you again on the fabulous service you provide. I am sure your new offerings will bring you even greater success. I am so glad I found you. I looked at other resume preparation services but yours was definitely the most compelling. Everyone I have shown my resume to is very impressed. I have given them your name and website (along with a glowing recommendation of course). I really can't thank you enough. I am very excited about the possibilities that await me. I guess I never realized the number of skills I have and things that I have accomplished until you organized them so coherently.

My service with Laura was outstanding. she did such an amazing job on my documents. At first I was skeptical and concerned about the price.. but in the end it is worth every penny. No suggestions at this point just keep up the great work. I am blown away at how amazing, well written and professional my resume documents look. Definitely will recommend to all who will listen!

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I will review your "custom tailored responses" and get back to you over the weekend. Not only will I be more than happy to endorse your services, but I would welcome personal contact with anyone considering using your services. As I am sure that you are aware, many people may feel skeptical about this type of service on line. I feel as though we have sat side by side at the same desk working on this project. Your relationship with me has been extremely personal, specific, and customized to meet my needs and certainly exceed my expectations. I can't thank you enough.
