I started a $20k/yr business in college...should I leave that off my resume?IB
I started a web development business while attending a target school. I manage all areas of my business, including finance and marketing. It made about $20k last year while also attending class. I've hired about 4 independent contractors. We don't just design websites -- we create other people's startups and web applications (one client wanted a clone of Youtube.)
I am also in the middle of starting an online startup but it hasn't received any funding yet.
Should I leave both off my resume? I heard recruiters, while love seeing initiative, hate to see too much independence, especially since i-banking internships are basically doing work passed down to you - nothing entreprenuerial about it. I was advised it would actually be a negative on my resume, as compared to my marketing internship freshman year where i did absolutely nothing except cold-call 100s of customers for my boss (NOT telemarketing).
So what should I do? Leave both on, leave one of them on, or leave both off?
