Many entrepreneurs say that working for themselves for too long has made them unemployable. Yet, many still decide to transition back to corporate.
While you may have more skills and talent to offer a company, reporting to someone else is a major change and you may be concerned that you won't be able to fit in seamlessly.
As a current entrepreneur, you already have a steady income and may afford to take longer to find the right fit.
Write down what your ideal career situation looks like for you. It takes an average of five months for a person to find a new role, so there is nothing wrong if you're still struggling after a month or two.
A coach can assist in finding out the kind of role you're looking for. You may be out of the loop for a while and may have an outdated idea of the typical hiring process.
A coach can bridge this gap, help get you up to speed on the latest interview techniques, and give you valuable feedback that appeals to companies. Coaching programs can also help you improve your skills.
Most entrepreneurs are proud of creating their own companies successfully. Still, some employers might be concerned that your background and attitude mean you're not a team player and may struggle to follow instructions.
Your background could give you an edge. A recent survey found that the most sought-after skills include taking the initiative and being able to adapt. Try to frame your background as experience in becoming adaptable and self-sufficient, and emphasize that you're excited to work in a team.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
