Default Re: Some help for you, Jim...

I used to do resume's professionally (and hated it) but this might help you anyway.

Since you've been self-employed for 20 years or so, what you'd be best with is what is known as a functional type of resume'. In this type, you focus on the actual activities you've performed or responsibilities you've handled in each 'job' or 'business'.

Even tho' your businesses have become largely self-regulating and self-perpetuating, they didn't get to that point by themselves. Your job is to show a prospective employer how you learned new tasks, and implemented them successfully, to make your businesses grow. You want to show both business and professional growth in doing so.

Even tho' online businesses are loner types of things, do make an effort to show people skills and networking skills. You also might include some of your community involvement type of activities to show people skills.

In your summarizing section, show how these skills you have would relate to the job(s) applied for.

Hope this is some help. Good luck with your job interview!
