If you are looking to reenter the workforce after owning your own business, you may be wondering where to start. Truth be told, finding employment after being the employer isn’t always easy. Entrepreneurs often position themselves incorrectly, missing out on opportunities they are highly qualified for because of a few simple missteps. The good news is that it is not impossible to appeal to the boss after being the boss. Here’s how:
Understand that there are going to be some preconceived notions about you and your business, and be proactive in combating them.
Unfortunately, biases can come into play when a hiring manager or recruiter sees that you are transitioning from being an entrepreneur to an employee. Employers may feel that your business was unsuccessful or that you will continue to work on the side, only to leave once your business takes off. They may also assume that you are unable to take direction from others. While none of these assumptions may be true, they can affect your ability to get your foot in the door for an interview, where selling yourself and your experience is easier than it is on paper.
