Resumes for Entrepreneurs Transitioning Back Into Job Market


If you are an entrepreneur transitioning back to the workplace, make the most of your resume by emphasizing the entrepreneurial transferable skills that apply to the type of job you’re targeting. Many employers, for example, seek candidates who can handle startup and turnaround situations. They’re also looking for professionals with experience in asset and liability management, budget development, building strategic alliances, business plan development, capital equipment budgets, competitive analysis, costing and budgeting, financial strategies, market strategy, profit and loss management/direction, new business development, operations management, research and development, return on investment, and strategic planning direction. Focus also on your entrepreneurial successes and accomplishments; avoid conveying any impression that you are leaving the entrepreneurial life because you didn’t succeed at it.
