Hi Khevna madam, Iam a mechanical engineer from Bangalore aged 49 years, during starting of my career, worked for 2 MNCs in Sales & Marketing, then started my own business and running it for last 20 years , but now due to unethical and unhealthy competitions in my field, iam not sure how iam going to continue in my business, iam good in technical learning, negotiations and strategies..plz advise me if i can look for a job suiting my background after such a long period of owning a business or can I get a freelance marketing job in industrial sectors? Iam also very good in technical and nontechnical content writing..iam very much in a confused state, plz help
Ans: Sure of course you can reboot and get back to the corporate world. Be sure to be able to explain clearly what you've been upto (your learnings, setbacks, strengths, skills) in your entrepreneurial venture and you may surprisingly find it as an additional feather in your cap instead of being weighed down by it.
First thing though, that I'd suggest, is to clear your head and pick your lane - what is it that you want to pursue: freelance marketing or content writing or sales and then draw up your resume to take it from there.
